The CIF-Southern Section announced this afternoon that Saturday games can be played if needed to break ties in standings, if those tiebreaking games are needed to determine leagues' playoff representation.

According to the Blue Book, which is the CIF-SS Constitution, Friday (May 15) is the final day that baseball and softball games can be played. Leagues generally do not schedule games for Friday in the final week of the regular season, so that any tiebreaker games can be added to the schedule for Friday.

With rain today and more expected Friday, the CIF-SS office allows Saturday games to be played but, as mom would have said, "just this one time."

Here is how the CIF-SS office lays it out ...

1.    Schools must request from this office (CIF-SS) on Friday permission to play on Saturday and only if the weather has created an unplayable situation.
2.    Schools requesting permission must have a valid reason for playing that game, for example to decide league entry placement.
3.    Schools granted permission must start their game no later than 9:00 a.m. and league entries are due by Noon for those leagues with teams granted permission to play on Saturday.
4.    If on Saturday their field is unplayable they must have a back-up facility already in place or that game will not be allowed to be played.
