WEATHER

Umpires will make the decision on when to come off the fields in the event of rain. Lightning will be automatic cause for suspending play for (30) minutes. Pickerington Central and Pickerington North will control the decision on when labor can be used on the fields to get them back in playing shape.

Labor - Stingrays parents as needed in addition to the field maintenance staff.
