For a complete schedule of games and events, please consult the GMBA master calendar.
If any GMBA umpire assigned to a game hears thunder during a game, the Home Plate umpire will immediately end the game. In leagues that do not have an assigned GMBA umpire, the home team coach is required to end the game if he or she hears thunder.
At the first sound of thunder, play is to be suspended and all participants are to seek shelter until 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder.
Baseball Ontario follows Environment Canada 2016 lightning safety guidelines.
If you can hear thunder, you can get hit by lightning. Take shelter immediately. If you cannot find a sturdy, fully enclosed building with wiring and plumbing, get into a metal-roofed vehicle. Stay inside for 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder.
Direct strikes are responsible for only 5% of lightning-related deaths and injuries. Two other types of hazardous phenomena are caused by lightning. Ground current and side flash account for 60 to 80% of lightning-related injuries and deaths. A ground current is set up when lightning hits the ground, spreads out and sends a current through a victim. Side splash occurs when lightning hits a tall object, travels partly down the object and then jumps to a nearby victim.
