During the season BWCS News subscribers will receive the latest breaking news about the Boston West Coed Softball League, special league activities, captain's action items, rules changes, etc., directly in their email. Routine web-specific changes, updates, and notifications (generally dealing with Schedules and Standings) are listed in the Hot Corner.

Please read our BWCS News Tip regarding YahooGroups.

If you are a Team Captain, it is highly recommended that at least you or a designate join BWCS News. It would be great if ALL your team members subscribed to this e-newsletter. Thank you. 

BWCS News Tip

If you do not receive a rainout status email from BWCS by 4:30 PM on a questionable weather day, click the BWCS Messages button at the top of this page and scroll down to the latest dated message to check if a rainout message is stuck in the YahooGroups queue. If there are no messages your Team Captain must then call the Commissioner per the Rainout Email Policy to the right of this paragraph.


Remember to visit the Hot Corner for special league announcements, news about the latest changes to the site, enhancements to the Standings page, etc.

Rainout Email Policy

It is the responsibility of each TEAM CAPTAIN to read, understand, and adhere to this Rainout Email policy. Thank you.

All games should be played as scheduled, unless the League Commissioner has explicitly cancelled the game or field conditions at game time do not allow it. Decisions about the 6:00 PM games will be made by 4:30 PM.

If you are a subscriber to our e-newsletter, BWCS News, you should receive an email notifying you of the game's status around 4:30 PM. If you do not have email access before game time, please contact your team captain. If you are a Team Captain, you may call the League Commissioner for rainout status.

If you do not receive a BWCS News Rainout Notice email by 4:30 PM on a questionable weather day, YOU MUST CALL THE COMMISSIONER if you are the CAPTAIN. Only CAPTAINS are to call the Commissioner for Rainout information. Between 4:15 PM and 4:30 PM, there should be a rainout status message regarding the 6:00 PM games recorded on the Commissioner's answering machine.

Often "blanket" cancellations of all games at 4:30 PM are not necessary as the weather might clear up by the later games or conversely, the weather might worsen after the early game. Therefore, if you have doubts about the weather and a blanket cancellation has NOT been issued via BWCS News, call the Commissioner as detailed below:
Your Scheduled Game Time Call Commissioner by
6:00 or 6:15 PM 4:15 PM–4:30 PM
7:30 or 7:45 PM 6:15 PM–6:30 PM
9:00 PM 7:45 PM–8:00 PM

This modification to the Rainout communication process is to ensure that there is a clear contingency communications plan for when neither Bob nor Cameo are available to send the YahooGroups email or when technology somehow lets us down. Remember, it is each Team Captain's responsibility to call the Commissioner if s/he does not receive a BWCS News Rainout Status email by 4:30 PM on an inclement day and to communicate the status to his/her team.

Rained out games will be made up. Forfeits will not. Hopefully, no rain during game time!! Good luck this season.
