In the event that four and a half innings of a game are not played, your ticket can be exchanged at the box office for the same price admission to any regular season game played at Wuerfel Park during this season, based on availability.
Rainy Day Terminology
RAIN DELAY: A rain delay is when the game is officially delayed. Play will continue later that day. Tickets cannot be exchanged in the event of a rain delay.
RAINOUT: A rainout is when a game is canceled due to rain. When this happens, the game is usually rescheduled into a double header the next time the two teams meet. In the event of a rainout, tickets can be exchanged at the box office window for the same price admission to any regular season game, played at Wuerfel Park, during this season, based on availability.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If it is raining before the game…
If the rain stops before the scheduled game start time, the game will continue as planned. If the rain continues into the scheduled game time, Beach Bums management will invoke a rain delay.
If it begins to rain during the game…
The Beach Bums staff will work with the opposing team’s managers, along with local weather outlets, to ascertain the immediate weather outlook. If the teams feel that the inclement weather will pass, a rain delay is put into effect. If the teams agree that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time, an official rainout is announced. The Frontier League rules allow up to a two hour rain delay.
If a rainout is declared after four and a half innings of baseball have been played, a game is considered “official.” In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges.
