Important Weather Information:

How will we notify families if a game needs to be cancelled or have the start adjusted for any reason?

 MREC will announce delays or cancellations in this order.
  • WCLO
  • SOCIAL MEDIA (Facebook Twitter)
  • Email
As unfavorable weather sometimes occurs at the last minute, MREC will post cancellations or delays as quick as possible.  Should unfavorable weather occur without warning, we will first attend to the safety and needs of those athletes on the fields, then make further cancellation/delay announcements.

What is your policy for heat warnings?
        MREC:  Milton Rec reserves the right to cancel postpone any game at any time of the day in which weather condition are not favorable. Every attempt will be made to make decisions prior to game time, however MREC reserves the right to make make game time decisions

        Little and Bigger Hitters:  If a heat warning of any kind is in affect, all games will be cancelled.  Every attempt will be made to make up the game at a later date.

        MREC Junior / Little / Pony leagues:  If the heat index is 105 degrees at 3:30 PM, games will be cancelled.  Every attempt will be made to make up the game at a later date.  MREC reserves the right to make make game time decisions.

What is the difference between the different levels of play?

        MREC:   Milton Rec games are designed to be in house and fun first leagues.  Some leagues do have limited travel to local communities.  Every player that wants to play gets to play.  We have rules in place to help ensure equity in playing time.  This is a great chance to learn the sport of baseball and have fun doing it
