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 Gwinnett but it may not be raining at the ballpark.
If it is raining at the ballpark before the start of a game, the Braves tarp 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, Braves management will invoke a rain delay.
If it begins to rain during the game...
If it begins to rain during the game, the Stripers tarp 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 affect. If 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 5 innings of a game are not completed, except when the home team is in the lead at the end of 4-1/2 innings, your ticket will be good for any regular season game of the same season and may be exchanged at the Gwinnett Stripers Box Office for a ticket of equal or lesser value subject to availability. No refunds, no exchanges of expired tickets, except as above. 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 Gwinnett Stripers game and less than five (5) innings (4 & 1/2 if the Braves are ahead) are played, you have three options:
(1) Call the Gwinnett Stripers Ticket Office to reschedule your group outing for any future regular season game of the same season. Group tickets must be exchanged at the Gwinnett Stripers Ticket Office at least two days prior to the future game you wish to attend and will be exchanged for tickets of equal or lesser value. No refunds will be given and tickets may not be upgraded.
(2) Group members may retain their tickets and exchange them individually for a future regular season game of the same season in accordance with the Individual Ticket policy outlined above.
(3) Tickets can be donated to the Gwinnett Stripers 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 (5) innings have been played, a game is considered "official." In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges.
Rain Policy Terminology
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.
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 regular season game of the same season and may be exchanged at the Gwinnett Stripers Box Office for a ticket of equal or lesser value subject to availability.
