Baseball Ontario follows Environment Canada guidelines in respect to lightning safety:

When Thunder Roars - Go Indoors

 
If you can hear thunder you can get hit by lightning. Take shelter immediately. If you cannot find a sturdy, fully enclosed building with wiring and plumbing, get into a metal roofed vehicle.

Stay inside for 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder.

Direct strikes are responsible for only 5% of lightning related deaths and injuries. Two other types of hazardous phenomena are caused by lighting. Ground Current and Side Flash are responsible for 60 to 80% of all lightning related injuries and deaths

Ground Current

When lighting hits the ground, spreads out and sends a current through the victim

Side Flash

When lightning hits a tall object, travels partly down the object and then jumps to a nearby victim.
