Lightning/ Tornadoes: 

When lightning and/or tornado warnings are in the Lebanon area, it will be the decision of the umpire and/or managers to decide if it safe to play as these events can change moment to moment. 

There could be times when the city or LYB cancels events ahead of time due to imminent warnings in the area. All games/practices will be stopped when the lighting siren sounds. 

Activity may resume after the all clear buzzer sounds when lightning is no longer detected. 


Practice or competition in hot and humid environmental conditions poses special problems for student athletes. Heat stress and resulting heat illness is a primary concern in these conditions. Although deaths from heat illness are rare, constant surveillance and education are necessary to prevent heat-related problems. The following practices should be observed. 

Unrestricted access to water at all times. Asthmatic athletes may remove themselves from workout without penalties or repercussions. 

Heat index of:

• < 95 degrees: No Restrictions
• 95 - 99 degrees: 15 min. of exposure = 5 min break 
• 100 - 104 degrees: 15 min. exposure = 15 min. breaks 
• > 104 degrees: No outdoor activity
