Field Closure Info
by posted 04/23/2014
 

With the combined league, we will be implementing a new procedure for field closures for the 2014 season.  These are for games only.  Practice and Batting cages will be to the discretion of the coaches.  If a city or the school district closes a field, an email will be sent out.  In these cases, coaches will need to cancel their practice.

 

 There will be two ways that MBA will be communicating:

 

MBA Website (www.minnetonkabaseball.org):

The Field Open/Close Detail will be placed in the upper right box on the main page.  It will show if the field is open/closed based on a color coding.  Green, Yellow or White means the field is open.  Red means it is closed at the moment. 

 

Email:

If a field is closed, all teams scheduled to play on this field for the day will be sent an email notifying them of the closure.  This email will include all coaches/parents by using the email that was provided during registration.

 

Please note that fields may reopen during the day as the field conditions improve.  With that in mind, please don’t assume your game/practice will be canceled later in the day if the field is closed earlier that day.  Each field may also be different.  Some might reopen, while others will remain closed based on the field conditions.

 

If the fields do reopen, another email will be sent to all coaches/parents that have remaining games for the day on each field.
