Lightning – Baseball Ontario and HDBA Rules

Baseball Ontario Lightning Rules
When Lightning Roars, go Indoors!

Lightning Rules for the HDBA
In 2010 the HDBA passed a motion on the issue of lightning which is different than the 30-30 rule set out by Baseball Ontario.

In the event that lightning is seen in the area the umpires shall stop the game immediately. It is agreed that if proper shelter is not available the game is considered to be over. Alexander Park, Bernie Arbour Stadium and Mahoney Park have designated clubhouses for shelter and are the only 3 parks in the city for this. At these parks you will wait as per the lightning rule, at any other park the game is over.

This is for the safety of all involved.

Please do not let coaches or parents tell you differently. If you receive any conflict regarding this rule please advise Bill immediately.

We are always looking for new members, if you are interested in umpiring please make sure you are able to get to one of the certified Baseball Ontario clinics in the province.

For those who do not know Dennis well, his extensive career as an umpire has lead him to be a former Supervisor of Umpires of Ontario and Baseball Canada. If you have any questions or concerns regarding a specific rule and can’t find help through prayer, than Dennis is your man to talk to. The season is slowly coming to an end which must mean our annual Labour Day Weekend Tournament can’t be far behind.
