Specific days in which water bottles are allowed will be clearly publicized by the Trenton Thunder.

Weather Policy

Our game is on as scheduled! There is no need to call the Thunder Front Office. Unless our homepage and social media says otherwise, our game is on as scheduled. 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 cancelled due to rain. In the event of a rainout, the Thunder will announce guidelines for exchanging your tickets. Typically, tickets can be exchanged at the radius180 Box Office 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.

Wifi

At this time, Trenton Thunder Ballpark does not offer public wifi.
