Lehigh Valley IronPigs Weather Policy

It never rains at Coca-Cola Park ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

... But if a strong gust of wind brings precipitation from
a neighboring venue, this is what you need to know:


Weather policy details

Tonight's game status  

The IronPigs are preparing to play each game on the schedule. Tonight's game is on as scheduled unless there's an announcement on the IronPigs official Twitter/Facebook pages and website. 

We will do everything we can to play games on time and on schedule

It's best for everyone if we play games on schedule, and our team's top priority is making that happen if the conditions allow for a safe experience for both players and fans.

Gates and giveaway procedures

Gates will almost certainly open on schedule, and any giveaways for that day's game will be distributed, even if we're in "wait and see" mode with the weather. If there is a delay, we will announce it over the PA speakers, our website and social media channels, and invite guests to seek shelter on the main concourse.

Don't expect an early announcement of a delay.

Weather forecasting isn't an exact science. We've seen a "90% chance of heavy rain" turn into a beautiful evening for baseball and we've seen storms come out of nowhere to impact games. Our team is constantly monitoring the conditions, but we are unlikely to have enough information to change a game's status until the last couple hours before the scheduled first pitch.

If there is a change to a game's status, when will it be announced?

As soon as word is official. We don't make guesses. Our message will always be one of three things: 1) The game is on as scheduled, 2) We are in a delay, or 3) The game has been postponed. Every day starts with "The game is on as scheduled" and unless you hear otherwise from an official IronPigs channel -- Website, Twitter, Facebook, or in-park PA announcement -- you should assume nothing has changed.

Keep your tickets and parking voucher handy

If a game is postponed, both your tickets and parking voucher may be exchanged for a future contest this season at Coca-Cola Park. All exchanges must be made in person at the Provident Bank Ticket Office (no phone or online exchanges) and are subject to availability.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have not seen an official announcement on IronPigsBaseball.com, our Twitter or our Facebook page, then the evening's game is still on as scheduled.

If there is a change to a game's status, it will be announced on IronPigsBaseball.com, TwitterFacebook  and over the ballpark speakers. Twitter is the recommended place to look for updates. It's free, can be viewed without an account, and our timeline is embedded on this page.

You'll be able to exchange your tickets for another IronPigs game later in the season. All exchanges must be made in person at the Provident Bank Ticket Office (not online or by phone) and all exchanges are subject to availability.

If you have tickets to a game that is postponed, they may be exchanged for any future game, even if you want to come back for the make-up date. All exchanges must be made in-person at the Provident Bank Ticket Office and are subject to availability. While we cannot guarantee the same seats during the exchange, we will make every effort to place you as close as possible to where you were scheduled to sit.

If a game isn't official (4.5 completed innings), then you will be able to exchange your tickets for a future contest. If more than 5.5 innings are complete, the game counts as a completed contest and you will not be able to exchange your tickets.

No. You just need one ticket!

If you already had a ticket for a single game date that becomes a doubleheader, you're able to access both games with your ticket (bonus baseball!).

If you have a ticket to a game that is postponed, you may exchange your tickets for the make-up date/doubleheader at the Provident Bank Ticket Office (no phone or online exchanges) and secure a seat for both games (subject to availability).

During the season, the Provident Bank ticket office is open M-F from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and all game days until approx. the seventh inning.
