What is the weather policy?

Written by Bozell

While every situation is different based on time of day and which game, the following are standard procedures when inclement weather disrupts a game or games. 

  • No game will be skipped. Meaning, each game will continue in the order it is scheduled to play. If weather changes the date, the rescheduled game will still precede any future games. 
  • Tickets are good for the game only. If game date is moved due to weather, the ticket for that game must be used.
  • If a game is started then delayed or postponed to a new time/day, the ticket will be marked and/or scanned for use during the new start time. Please hold on to that ticket.
  • Because all parking passes are by day, if a game is moved to a new day, they also will be accepted. If a lot becomes full due to the change in date, an alternate lot will be made available upon your arrival at that gate. 

What time do the gates open for each game?

Written by Bozell

The gates open two hours prior to the first game of the day. If there are two games, the second game will open approximately one hour prior. All sections of the stadium are cleared between games so the times will vary.

When (how) are the if-necessary games determined?

Written by Laura Spaulding

Saturday If Necessary (Bracket 1/Bracket 2): The second Saturday of the College World Series will be utilized if, depending on what side of the bracket, there are two teams with one loss. There will either be zero, one or two games played. There will be no games if one team from each bracket has no losses at the end of Friday's competition (games 11 and 12). If all four remaining teams have one loss, there will be two games. If only one side of the bracket has two one loss teams, then there will be one game played. Fans should be sure to use the correct Bracket 1 or Bracket 2 ticket depending on the teams/bracket determination. 

Finals Game 3: The third game of the best-of-three championship series will be played if both teams win one of the first two games.

When will the schedule be announced for the teams that make the CWS?

Written by Bozell

The eight teams that qualify for the CWS play the Super Regional round on June 10-13. Once the eight teams have been decided, the NCAA determines the day each bracket will play. The schedule is typically announced on on Monday night, June 13 or early Tuesday, June 14.
