Weather & Field Status Update
All Fields are SEE BELOW
Friday 3:30 pm update: We are moving forward with tryouts on Saturday and Sunday as scheduled. We are expecting the rain to taper to a drizzle and be totally gone by the time we start up tomorrow. Conditions will improve as the day goes on. We are already underway with prepping fields and will make adjustments as needed in order to prevent damage to the fields. Please be sure all players stay off fields unless they are actually in the process of their tryout. We'll need coaches to set up either in the stands or in the driest parts of the OF grass. FYI, we considered changing the schedule, but reorganizing the number of kids, volunteers and coaches who will be out there tomorrow is just not worth it when we have temps in the 40's and no rain. We have ordered sun for tomorrow to arrive right at 10:00! Thanks in advance for everyone's patience tomorrow.
As always, cages are open, but do not use them in the event of 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:
* Fields, common areas and any area of higher elevation.
* Tall isolated objects, such as flag poles, light poles or trees.
* All metal fences, bleachers and batting cages.
* Unprotected open sided buildings like dugouts, picnic pavilions, rain shelters, tents, or any covered rest area.
* 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 20 minutes – again common sense and good judgment should be used at all times.
