Rainouts and Game Changes: Policies and Procedures
There are instances when games will need to be cancelled or changes to games occur and in those instances we must follow a strict protocol and guideline to ensure that all people know of these changes and/or cancellations. Communication is key as many people are affected by one change. See below for the procedure required in the event a game needs to be changed or cancelled...please ensure you follow each step so that no one is left out.
