Please note the following is effective for any 8:30 Scheduled Start time and is a Local Rule Change.

          Current Rule - HOUSE LEAGUE, COBA & OBA - "Game curfews shall be from the Scheduled Start Time"

          Modification - FOR REP, SELECT AND HOUSE LEAGUE:   "Where an 8:30 scheduled start time utilizes the same umpire(s) from a 6:15 scheduled game,  the umpires shall be provided time to change equipment and/or fields prior to the 8:30 scheduled start. The new official start time shall be revised and announced at the Plate Meeting by the Plate Umpire. A game should not start later than 8:40 with maximum drop dead time of 10:55pm. "

          Notes:   Every effort should be made to start the game as soon as possible to permit the full 2:15 playing time. BOMBA will make every effort to inform coaches of this ahead of time.

When thunder roars, GO INDOORS!

If you can hear thunder, you can get hit by lightning. Take shelter immediately. If you cannot find a sturdy, fully enclosed building with wiring and plumbing, get into a metal-roofed vehicle. Stay inside for 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder.

Direct strikes are responsible for only 5% of lightning-related deaths and injuries. Two other types of hazardous phenomena are caused by lightning. Ground current and side flash account for 60 to 80% of lightning-related injuries and deaths. A ground current is set up when lightning hits the ground, spreads out and sends a current through a victim. Side splash occurs when lightning hits a tall object, travels partly down the object and then jumps to a nearby victim.
