Lightning Policy

Thunderstorms and Lightning!

Late spring & early summer in the Northern Rockies can mean frequent thunderstorms and quite often, lightning.  These storms often occur in the late afternoon & early evening and can cause havoc for baseball schedules as well as occasionally causing safety issues due to the inherent dangers of being outdoors during an active thunder/lightning event. 

Please read the below document for Bozeman Baseball's Lightning policy as well as Babe Ruth League's (our national sanctioning organization) official policy. 

All coaches are responsible for knowing this material and acting responsibly in times of game/practice conflict with potentially dangerous weather. When we abide by these policies, we can be safe and play ball.
