2017 Rain and Inclement Weather Information

2017 Weather Information
If the weather is questionable, what do I do?
- If it is raining before the game...
First, it is helpful to keep in mind there are many instances when it may be raining in some parts of Colorado Springs, but it may not be raining at the ballpark.

If it is raining at Security Service Field before the start of a game, the award-winning Sky Sox grounds crew is hard at work protecting the field against the elements. Because of this, if the rain stops before the game's scheduled start time, the game will continue as planned. If the rain continues into the scheduled game time, Sky Sox management may invoke a rain delay.

- If it begins to rain during the game...
If it begins to rain during the game, the Sky Sox grounds crew will quickly cover the infield with a large tarp. At that time, game officials will work with local weather outlets to ascertain the immediate weather outlook. If game officials feel that the inclement weather will pass, a rain delay is put into effect. At the point game officials feel that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time, an official rainout is announced.

Rainout ticket policy
In the event five (5) innings of a game are not completed, except when the home team is in the lead at the end of four and a half (4 1/2) innings, your ticket will be good for any 2017 regular season game (*exclusions apply) and may be exchanged at the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Box Office for a ticket of equal or lesser value subject to availability. No refunds, no exchanges of expired tickets, except as outlined above, are available. No exchanges will be made for complimentary tickets. There are no rain check privileges associated with the second game of a doubleheader.

If you are scheduled for a group outing at a Sky Sox game and less than five (5) innings (or four and a half if the Sky Sox are ahead) are played, you have three options:
- (1) Call your Colorado Springs Sky Sox representative to reschedule your group outing for another game during the rest of the 2017 Sky Sox season. Tickets must be exchanged in advance of the new date for your group. No refunds will be given. Tickets may be upgraded upon availability.
- (2) Group members may retain their tickets and exchange them individually for a future 2017 regular season game in accordance with the individual ticket policy outlined above.
- (3) Tickets can be donated to the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Community Relations Department to be distributed to local charitable youth organizations on your behalf.

Note: If a game is called due to inclement weather or other circumstances after five innings have been played, a game is considered "official." In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges.

Rain Policy Terminology
Rain Delay - A game that is under a rain delay is in an official delay but will resume play later that day. Tickets cannot be exchanged in the event of a rain delay.

Rainout/Postponement - A game that is rained out or postponed will not be played that day due to inclement weather. In the event of a rainout or postponement, your ticket will be good for any 2017 regular season game (*exclusions apply) and may be exchanged at the Colorado Springs Sky Sox box office for a ticket of equal or lesser value subject to availability.
