Managers who do not attend Manager Meeting, and do not send a representative, will be prohibited from beginning tournament play before check-in with Field Director and are prohibited from Roster additions ...

ADVERSE WEATHER PROCEDURES/POLICY - There has been some rain overnight Wednesday, with occasional showers in the immediate forecast ... The following information may be helpful to Managers and players as the tournament continues through Sunday ...

ALL play/no-play decisions are made at the fields of play, at game time ... Phone calls to the SSUSA offices will NOT be informative or authoritative as to current conditions and/or potential schedule adjustments ... Avoid the possibility of forfeits by being present at the tournament site and ready to play when originally scheduled ...

• The SSUSA Official Rulebook Section 11 (pg. 56) governs procedures to be implemented in the event of adverse weather, as follows...

"...If game times must be reduced because of time limitations due to inclement weather, or other acts of God, the following methods may be implemented, in priority order:

A. Games may be reduced to five innings, with the 5th inning being the open inning.
B. Batters may have a one-one count when they enter the batter's box.
C. In severe time restrictions, the batter may be allowed only one strike..."

Good luck to all!
