Due to the excessive amounts of rain we have recieved this week and more forecasted for tonight and tomorrow, the SF Rec and Park Dept has closed ALL GRASS FIELDS and the large diamond at Silver Terrace because it has a dirt mound and has been deemed too wet for play. Therefore, all SFYBL games are cancelled for March 17th unless your game is scheduled to be played on a turf field at 11:00am or later. Games scheduled for the 9:00am slot on turf fields have been CANCELLED DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF THUNDER STORMS ON SATURDAY MORNING. Teams with a game scheduled to play on a turf field at 11:00am or later should arrive prior to gametime and be ready to play.
However, before heading out, be sure to check the Rec and Park rainout report and the SFYBL website just in case there has been a closure of a turf field. In the event that it starts to rain while you are in the middle of a game and you are in the Mustang, Bronco or Pony division, it will be up to the umpire to "call" an end to the game if conditions become unsafe to continue play. If you are in the Shetland or Pinto division and you do not have an umpire, it will be up to the coaches to mutually agree when it has become unsafe to continue play.
