Today's Game(s) have been canceled due to inclement weather
Due to the recent rains all ELB fields will be closed today 3/13/2020 and will return to play April 6th. More info to follow.
The decision to cancel games is based on the following criteria:
1) If the City of Long Beach's Athletic Field Condition Hotline states
Long Beach fields are closed, we have no choice but to cancel games.
2) If the City of Long Beach does not close the fields, then the decision to
cancel games will be based on our ELB Rain Out Policy,
in the ELB Specific Playing Rules Policy in the Downloads section of this website.
In essence: One hour prior to the scheduled start of a game opposing managers and one on-site Board member (preferably the Field Director) will assess the field and dugout areas for safe playing conditions. They shall then determine if the scheduled game should be delayed or postponed. A decision may also be made at that time if the remainder of the games scheduled for that day (field specific) shall also be postponed.
Please remember that rained out games will be scheduled as soon as possible (often the Sunday following the rained out games). Pitching rules will still be in effect for Bronco and Mustang divisions. For the Pinto Division, the Division Director will review the game schedules and determine if the max innings per week rule will be in effect or not. The 40 hour rest rule will remain in effect.
