These policies may be amended at any time without notice

In order to provide a safe and enjoyable family atmosphere for our fans, the following will be enforced at all games:

For the Most Up-To-Date Info

When the weather for a game is in question, the Thunder will post a game status update prominently on trentonthunder.com and on social media (@TrentonThunder). There is no need to call the Thunder Front Office, they will have the same information available to them that is posted on the website and social media.

What Does This Mean for the Game?

If it is raining before the game, the Trenton Thunder Storm Crew has been hard at work protecting the field against the elements. If the rain stops before the scheduled game start time, the game will continue as planned. If the rain continues into the scheduled game time, Thunder management will invoke a rain delay.

If it begins to rain during the game, the Trenton Thunder Storm Crew will quickly place a large tarp across the infield. At this time, Thunder staff will work with the opposing team's manager, along with local weather outlets, to determine the immediate weather outlook. If the teams feel that the inclement weather will pass, a rain delay is put into effect. If the teams agree that the inclement weather will not pass in a reasonable amount of time, an official rainout is announced.

Helpful Terms to Know

Rain Delay: When a game is officially delayed. Play is expected to continue later that day. Tickets cannot be exchanged in the event of a rain delay.

Rainout: When a game is postponed due to rain. When this happens, the game is usually rescheduled into a doubleheader the next time the two teams meet. In the event of a rainout, the Thunder will announce guidelines for exchanging your tickets. Typically, tickets can be exchanged at the box office window for the same price admission to any regular-season game, played at Trenton Thunder Ballpark, during the regular season, based on availability.

Exchanges: If a rainout is declared after four and a half innings of baseball have been played and one of the teams has the lead, a game is considered “official.” In this case, there will be no ticket exchanges. In the event that four and a half innings of a game are not played, the Thunder will announce the guidelines for exchanging tickets.
