Weather & Field Status Update
Summer update: All fields will PARTIALLY OPEN as shown below
We have now completed our regular season and playoffs for baseball and softball. Fields and cages are only avaiilable for use by NYO sanctioned summer teams. Once the summer teams are done, fields will be completely shut down for the most past as we work of field recovery and conversion to football and fall baseball/softball season.
We will not update this site during the summer for weather. Teams and coaches should use best judgement and stay off fields during inclement weather in order to keep players safe and to maintain the quality of the fields.
As always, cages are open, but do not use them in the event of steady rain, lightning or dangerous, frigid or sloppy conditions. Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan
Thank You Team Sponsors!
Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan
Thunder & Lightning Safety Plan for NYO's Fields at Chastain Park.
* All play or practice is suspended
* All players, coaches, umpires, officials and spectators should leave the field and seek shelter immediately!
Move to a sturdy enclosed structure or a fully enclosed vehicle with the windows rolled up. No place is absolutely safe from a lightning threat, however some places are safer than others. Stay away from:
* Keep off of fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Avoid Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* Keep away all metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Avoid all water and water fountains.
Safety is the number one consideration - common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.
Parents dropping off unattended children should have a safety plan in place for their child.
Do not return until the all clear is sounded – 3 quick 5 second horn blasts.
NOTE – For offsite NYO games or practices, umpires and coaches should follow the same safety guidelines if they hear thunder or see lightning. Play or practice shall not be resumed until there has been a minimum all clear period of 15 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.
