As soon as lightning is seen or heard, or if lightning is detected within 8 miles of the park using online weather apps, practice and competition should be suspended immediately. All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately. Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. Dugouts and pavilions DO NOT provide adequate protection from lighting. Safety is the number one consideration – common sense and good judgement should be used at all times. Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child. It is safe to head back to the field 30 minutes after the thunder and lightning have come to an end.
