New Rules ...

County Time Limits!


There will be no new inning after 1 hour in either game of a doubleheader for weeknight games (Monday through Friday) through May 31 because of daylight/darkness issues. Beginning June 1, there will be no new inning after 1 hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) for weeknight games as per the County rules. Saturday-Sunday games are unaffected.

 

Metal Cleats!

Check that! City now says metal cleats are allowed in all programs, including Coed.

No metal cleats, however, are allowed in any County division.

Rain, rain go away … but if it doesn’t …

check the status of your game

on the SSUA Weather Hotline, 509-723-4511

        

        Games canceled or postponed by weather, or other unforeseen circumstances, by 12 noon will be posted to the Weather Hotline. … Umpires will be called regarding cancellations or postponements that occur after 12 noon.

       In the event of inclement weather, if your game is not on the recorded message and you haven’t been called, GO TO YOUR GAME SITE! Because weather conditions can vary within our area, rainouts ARE NOT one-size-fits-all. You may have to postpone a game when you arrive, but that is one of your responsibilities that you can’t do from home!
