Inclement Weather. All efforts should be made to play games safely in inclement weather.

  • A minimum two-hour notice is to be provided if a game is cancelled due to weather. Failure to provide proper notice may be grounds for forfeit and the game will not be rescheduled.
  • If a two-hour notice is not possible, failure to show up at the field to greet and notify the team of the cancellation shall be grounds for forfeit and the game will NOT be rescheduled.

  • The following rescheduled game information must be provided to the District scheduler (scheduler@littleleaguewad1.org) to update the District schedule:

Suspended Game & Pitch Count Procedure

When a game is suspended due to weather (rule 3.10(b)), stopped with tie score or otherwise does not meet Rule 4.10 for a regulation game, the following steps should be followed:

For the PLAYED PORTION of the Original game:

  • HOME team manager should contact the District scheduler to report the incomplete game, include original game number/information.
  • For Baseball:
    • Both managers should enter Pitch Count for the portion of the game PLAYED on the Original game date.
    • The game will be adjusted on the District scheduler as "do not count towards team standings."
    • The game will remain on the schedule so that pitch count is recorded and tracked on that date.
  • For Softball, the game will be "unscheduled" same as rainout.
  • Score should NOT be entered at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there two schedules on my Team Connect? One schedule is posted by District 1 and is the MASTER SCHEDULE to be followed by all teams. This schedule is shared between all participating teams in the division via Bonzi Team pages. The District schedule hosts the baseball pitch count record which is shared between all participating teams. It is the responsibility of the HOME team manager to ensure the game date, location and time is accurate, see instructions above.

A second schedule which may appear in your Bonzi team is posted by your league. This occurs when a league opts to use the Stack Sports Umpire scheduling system or the field management system. These items are league specific, and coordinated at the league level, therefore the schedule must be added to their league's Bonzi program.

The two schedules should be the same. If they are not, the HOME TEAM MANAGER should contact District 1 scheduling, the opposing manager, and/or the league scheduler as needed to update the schedules so that all teams and umpires arrive at the same time and place for a game!

Can we play a double header? For major divisions and above - yes. For minor divisions and T-ball - no. Refer to Rule 3.11, 4.13, Reguilation VII(d) and Softball Regulation VI(e) which address double headers.
