MLLB Bad Weather Policy

Cold Weather:

Mon-Fri, MLLB Board of Directors will review the forecast for that evening by 2 pm. If the temperature is forecast to be below 40 degrees, MLLB will cancel outdoor practices for that evening.

Sat-Sun, MLLB Board of Directors will review the forecast the evening before by 8 am. If the temperatures are below 40 degrees, MLLB will cancel outdoor practices. It is possible to cancel practices only in the evening or only in the morning depending on the temperatures throughout the day.



During periods of rain, the City of McKinney will close the fields depending on how much water the fields have taken that day. This communication by MLLB will go out to all parents by 4 pm during the week typically. When the rain starts or increases after 4 pm, it will be up to the managers or umpires on the decision to play depending on the amount of rain and conditions of the field. During the weekends, this communication will be made by 8 am if there was overnight rain and could be made throughout the day if the rain intensifies.


Lightning/ Tornadoes:

When lightning and/or tornado warnings are in the McKinney 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 MLLB cancels events ahead of time due to imminent warnings in the area.
