Phillies 2006 Rain Policy
The Phillies, adhering to Major League Baseball guidelines, make every possible effort to play games on the scheduled dates.

Many factors are taken into consideration when there is potential for a game to be canceled (such as rescheduling, team travel plans, etc.). Since it's the Phillies desire to play every game at its original time and date, postponement decisions are not usually made until gametime at the earliest (special, extenuating circumstances may dictate otherwise). Fans are encouraged to arrive as planned.

Again, the Phillies will make every effort to play the games on the scheduled date. If a decision has been made to cancel a game, will report this as soon as possible.
A game becomes official after 4 1/2 innings if the Phillies lead. Otherwise five full innings must be completed before it is considered a regulation game. If a game is stopped before that time or postponed before it starts, rainchecks (original ticket) will apply as follows:

In case of a game being played as part of split (day/night) doubleheader, the raincheck (original ticket) will be valid for entry to the rescheduled game only.

In the case of a postponement and the game is unable to be rescheduled or rescheduled onto an existing game (thereby creating a traditional doubleheader) the rain check (original ticket) may be exchanged for a ticket of equal or lesser value to a future game at either the Advance Ticket Windows or through the mail, up to 60 days into the following baseball season. A raincheck is void after one legal game of a doubleheader.

For the most up-to-date weather and game information, fans are encouraged to listen to KYW 1060 or WPHT 1210.
