Rain Policy


 
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT RAINS BEFORE THE GAME?

If the rain stops before the scheduled start time, the game will begin as planned.

If the rain continues into the scheduled start time, and the field is determined to be unplayable, a rain delay will be invoked. A new start time will be determined when field conditions and the weather forecast improve.


If inclement weather is forecasted to not pass in a reasonable amount of time, the game may be postponed and deemed a rainout. Fans will be able to exchange their tickets.

For information on the status of a game, please follow the Bats on Twitter or Facebook.
 
 
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT RAINS DURING THE GAME?
If it begins to rain during the game or inclement weather is approaching the area, the Bats Grounds Crew will quickly place a large tarp across the infield and invoke a rain delay. During the rain delay, Bats management will work with the umpires, team managers, and local weather outlets to ascertain the weather forecast.

If the forecast is determined to be favorable, a time for the game to be continued will be announced.

If everyone agrees that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time and/or field conditions will be unplayable, an official rainout will be announced. Fans will be able to exchange their tickets.
 
 
RAINOUT & TICKET EXCHANGE POLICY
A rainout is when a game is cancelled due to rain. When this happens, the game is usually rescheduled into a double-header the next time the two teams meet.

In the event of a rainout, tickets can be exchanged at the Ticket Office window for the same price admission to any future regular season home game with the exception of Thunder Over Louisville and July 3.


If a rainout is declared after four and a half innings of baseball have been played, a game is considered "official". In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges.

All ticket exchanges must be done at the Ticket Office window for an equal or lesser value ticket. All exchanges are subject to availability.
 
 
LOADED VALUE TICKET EXCHANGE POLICY
Loaded Value Tickets (Rainout determined before gates open)
Loaded value tickets can be exchanged for any future regular season game (excludes Thunder Over Louisville & July 3) with loaded value transferred to the replacement game selected by the customer.

Loaded Value Tickets (Rainout determined after gates open)
Loaded value is not refunded or transferred, but the game ticket can be exchanged for any future regular season game (excludes Thunder Over Louisville & July 3).

Loaded Value Tickets (Rain delay, but game is completed)
Loaded value and tickets are not exchangeable.
