WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT RAINS
If it is raining before the game...
If it is raining before the start of a game, the Louisville Bats Grounds Crew has been hard at work protecting the field against the elements. This being the case, if the rain stops before the scheduled start time, the game will continue as planned. If the rain continues into the scheduled game time, Bats management, the umpires and team managers will invoke a rain delay.
If it begins to rain during the game...
If it begins to rain during the game, the Louisville Bats Grounds Crew will quickly place a large tarp across the infield. At this time, the Bats staff will work with the opposing team's managers, along with local weather outlets, to ascertain the immediate weather outlook. If the teams feel that the inclement weather will pass, a rain delay is put into effect. If the teams agree that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time, an official rainout is announced.
A rain delay is when the game is officially delayed. Play will continue later that day/night. Tickets cannot be exchanged in the event of a rain delay.
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.
