Weather Forecast – Week of 4/4

Central Illinois is in for another messy week of weather that will certainly wreak havoc on games scheduled from Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 8.

In light of the anticipated weather, here are a few reminders.

Schools:

  • Please cancel games at least two hours ahead of the scheduled start time to avoid paying umpire fees.
  • If canceled less than two hours before the scheduled start time, but before the plate meeting of game 1, umpires are due 1 game fee.
  • If canceled after the plate meeting, umpires are due full games for all games scheduled.
  • The head coach of the home team makes the decision to play or not play until the plate meeting. After the plate meeting, the umpires will determine if a field is playable.

Umpires:

  • Pay attention to your Arbiter notices throughout the day in case games are canceled.
  • Keep your schedules up-to-date in Arbiter and pay attention to new game postings on the Available Games page of the CISassigning website as well as your email.
  • As soon as umpires and coaches meet at home plate, the sole discretion to play/not play is made by the umpires. At any point during a contest, umpires may deem the field unplayable, at which time, the home team is responsible for making the field playable again or games may be postponed or suspended.
