The City usually waits to call games 'off' until around 3:30pm. Should it be a down pour early in the day, and it is obviously not going to happen, they might call it earlier.
Once the City makes the call to close the fields, the EBA scheduler will go into the Master Schedule and cancel games on the EBA website so that all our players, umpires, etc are notified that games are cancelled. There will also be a note on the top of the EBA homepage.
Once games are cancelled the first thing you must do is go to the MBL website and mark your game as cancelled. Do not wait to find a new date. Go in and cancel the game. If you don't cancel your game the umpires will not not be notified that the game was cancelled.
After you mark the game as cancelled you can work on rescheduling your game. The home team coach should contact the away team with new option dates/times. You can find options on the EBA Master Schedule. You can't take a date/time where the field is already in use. This is why we only schedule practices 2 weeks in advance.
If you want to cancel a game for any other reason, or before the City officially calls it, let the EBA scheduler know to cancel the game and then proceed with the procedures above.
