Inclement Weather Conditions

If there is severe thunder which approaches the playground, the umpires must stop play.

Play must be stopped when the time between seeing lightning and hearing thunder is 10 seconds or less.  When play has stopped umpires and players should leave the field.  Shelter must be taken inside a building.

Adopted from the KNHB guidelines, with appreciation: January 1998
