Baseball, as an outdoor summer sport, can be inherently hot. The two values that will be taken into account when modifying or canceling games/practices are air temperature and relative humidity. The combination of these two elements reflects the heat index. We will rely on the heat index reading that is updated hourly by the National Weather Service.
The above are guidelines and it is the responsibility of parents to make the ultimate decision as to the participation of their child in SEBA events when heat may be a factor, taking into consideration the age and physical condition of their child. Parents also have the ultimate responsibility to inform their child about the dangers of heat and need for protection, including sunscreen and proper hydration.
If temperatures do become elevated, we recommend that parents and coaches provide your player(s) with plenty of water and that you bring a towel dampened with cold water to put around the player’s neck when they are in the dugout. The towel should be put in a cooler of ice to cool off while the player is on the field. Utilize shade and take breaks often.
Whether it is dry heat or high levels of humidity, when the temperature rises, caution must be exercised. If a player is thirsty, it’s already a sign that they are becoming dehydrated. Encourage players to drink at least eight (8) ounces of water or Gatorade drink at least every 15 minutes, and find ways to give players a break in the shade. Heat-related injuries are some of the easiest weather issues to prevent.
Sunlight can have damaging effects on the skin. Not only is a sunburn painful, but each instance of such an injury can increase someone’s chances of developing skin cancer. The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of a sunscreen indicates how many times longer it takes for the user to develop skin damage from the sun. Be sure parents are properly protecting their kids by ensuring they apply sunscreen while dressing for a game or practice, even under their uniforms. Sunscreen should be reapplied frequently, at least on the arms and face, as sweating can wash it away.
Any cancellations or changes will be posted here on our homepage, on our SEBA facebook and sent via sportengine email to account holders if before 5pm. If cancellations happen after games have started each parks Site directors will communicate to those at the park.
