Baseball Heat Index Policy

BAA Baseball has implemented the following guidelines to deal with extreme heat at all youth baseball games and practices. It is designed to provide participants with a standard for safe play in situations of extreme heat.


The two values that BAA will take into account when modifying or canceling games/practices are air temperature and relative humidity. The combination of these two elements reflects the heat index. We will rely on the heat index reading that is updated hourly by the National Weather Service at the MSP Airport. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?textField1=44.83&textField2=-93.31#.V47pPqKFmOY
 

The BAA has defined five heat index zones.

 

PLEASE NOTE - The heat index will NOT be decided until 10 minutes prior to start of game. All games will finish with the guidelines with which the games started.
 

White Zone
Heat index of 65-80 degrees. In this range, the participant is in very little danger from heat and no special measures  will be taken by the BAA.
 

Yellow Zone
Heat index of 81-98 degrees. In this range, coaches will be encouraged to take extra steps to protect their players by making sure they keep them hydrated during games and practices.
 

Orange Zone
Heat index of 99-105 degrees. In this range, the BAA will implement the following at games: all measures taken in the Yellow Zone; coaches need to ensure all kids have water available; catchers will be allowed to catch only two innings in succession. If it is a practice day, coaches are instructed to keep players well hydrated and to take frequent breaks.  If an inning goes over 15 minutes then water should be given to the pitcher and catcher.
 

Red Zone
Heat index ranging of 106 to 110 degrees. In this range, the BAA will implement the following for games: all measures taken in the Yellow and Orange Zones; the length of games will be modified according to the schedule below.
     • Baseball grades Instructional and Mites  – games will be reduced by 15 minutes
     • Baseball grades Cubs - Major – games will be reduced by 20 minutes (no inning starts after 1 hour 50 min)

Recommend that cold wash clothes are available for the kids between innings.


If it is a practice day, coaches are instructed to reduce the time of practice, take frequent breaks and keep players well hydrated by having them drink water.
 

Black Zone
Heat index above 110. In this range, the BAA will cancel all games and practices until the heat index returns to 110 or below.


Note - During the course of the day, the heat index will rise and fall depending upon the time of day, etc. The above program modifications could also change throughout the course of the day, especially on a weekend. For example, a 1:00 p.m. game on Saturday could be played under the Orange Zone guidelines and a 4:00 p.m. game could be played under Red Zone guidelines.


The above are merely guidelines, and it is the responsibility of parents to make the ultimate decision as to the participation of their child in BAA events when heat may be a factor, taking into consideration the age and physical condition of their child. Parents also have the ultimate responsibility to inform their child about the dangers of heat and need for protection, including sunscreen and proper hydration.
