The decision on the playability and closings of fields is made by the county by 3:00pm on weekdays and 9:00am on weekends. There may be times when the decision is delayed as they are trying to make fields playable.
Rainouts at bccbaseball.com are activated for scheduled league games only. For info on a practice, contact your coach.
For GAMES, this page will be your only source for field closures. Do not rely on any other source for gameday decisions.
For PRACTICES, please use this link provided by the county - CLICK HERE
If you practice on a High School Baseball or Softball Field, those closures are not included in the link for practice decisions. Your best bet is to get your eyes on the field and see if it's playable or go off the decision on a field nearby the High School.

This website will be updated as soon as the information is available.

PLEASE NOTE: MONTGOMERY COUNTY CONTROLS THE DECISION ON THE OPENINGS/CLOSINGS OF THE FIELDS. BCC BASEBALL HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE DECISIONS
Sunday, October 29, 2023 at 6:40am
The County has opened all fields on 10/29 and all Select games are on as scheduled.
“There are three things you can do in a baseball game. You can win, or you can lose, or it can rain.” – Casey Stengel
The county has jurisdiction to make the call about closing fields due to rain. In the event of a league-wide cancellation due to inclement weather, BCC will make a decision to cancel all games before 8:00 am, when possible. If games are canceled league-wide, the BCC website will be updated. Once games are canceled for the entire day, league wide, it is impossible to reverse the decision for games later in the day.
In case of field closures, BCC will do what we can to make up rained out games or practices but we cannot guarantee that every event will be rescheduled. We have a built-in rain makeup week at the end of each season.
BCC Baseball will not refund fees for any programs (games, clinics, camps, practices) that are cancelled due to any cause beyond our control, including weather related events (rain or snow). BCC will do its best to makeup any event that is cancelled provided we have the availability of fields and facilities.
Lightning and Thunder
At the first instance of lightning or thunder, Managers shall halt the game and remove their teams from the field to the security of cars or buildings that offer protection. Should field conditions permit, and where otherwise reasonable consistent with protection of the players and others in attendance, the game may resume 15 minutes after the last instance of lightning or thunder.
