03-27-14 Cold Weather Statement for Baseball, Softball and Track

March 27, 2014 Athletic Department Blog Updates

Due to the ongoing cold temperatures, we have received several inquiries regarding postponing/canceling contests due to cold weather.

Prior to the officials assuming authority (jurisdiction) per the playing rules, it is the decision of home game management to determine whether or not a contest should be canceled or postponed due to cold temperatures. This decision should be made in consultation with all involved schools, but is ultimately the decision of the home team administration.

After a contest has started, or the officials have otherwise assumed authority per the playing rules, contest officials after consulting with coaches and home game management, shall determine whether play should be postponed or canceled.

There are rules contained in the Board of Control adopted policies in Section 32 (on page 34), relative to the payment of umpires/officials should the contest be postponed http://khsaa.org/handbook/20132014/policies.pdf.

Please feel free to contact our office if you have any additional questions. Thank you.
