The International League umpire-in-chief shall be the sole judge as to when play shall be suspended during a game because of unsuitable weather conditions, as well as when a game will be resumed or terminated after such suspension begins. An umpire must wait a minimum of 45 minutes after a suspension begins before making a determination on postponement or termination. A rain delay may continue as long as the umpire believes there is any chance to resume play.
There are basically two types of cancellations of Bisons games due to adverse weather conditions:
Game in progress postponed
If this occurs while you are at the ballpark, keep your ticket stub and redeem it at the ticket office for a future game subject to availability and excluding special events. Please be advised, this transaction does not have to take place on the day the game is postponed. By International League rules, five innings (or four and a half innings if the home team is leading the game) constitutes a complete game and no ticket refunds or rain checks will be issued. In the event a doubleheader is postponed after five innings of game one have been completed, it will be considered a complete game. No refunds or rain checks will be issued.
Game postponed before gates open
If this occurs, keep your whole ticket and exchange it at the ticket office for a future 2019 game of your choice, subject to availability and excluding special events.
*Please be advised the International League President governs the rescheduling of postponed games and, in most cases, the game will be replayed on the next available date. The umpires make the sole determination to postpone a game that has started and can only do so after waiting a minimum of 45 minutes from the time the game was halted. During an opponent's last trip to a city, the umpires make the sole determination to postpone a game, even if it hasn't started.
PLEASE NOTE: Umbrellas are permitted inside the ballpark. However, they may only be deployed while the game is officially in a rain delay. If you open an umbrella during game action, you will be asked by an usher to close it.
