I've been playing for a few weeks in IL and WI and it was 19F one day I went out. It's generally been in the low 30's to mid 40's for the last couple of weeks. No problem with me!

I've played in 8 degree weather before and with the wind it was probably in the negatives.

I'll play in single digits and negative wind chill here in central Illinois. Dressing in layers works great. Been trying to find some decent gloves that can keep fingers warm and still grip well. Sometimes wearing snow gloves and taking it off to throw works. Any ideas what some of you do for hands in the cold?

If you're going to take the route of wearing gloves and taking them off to throw, do it with a good pair of mittens instead. Mittens are warmer than gloves since your fingers are touching...they can share body heat better than if they're each isolated in their own section (so your hand warms back up faster after being out to throw). A handwarmer in the mitten is also more effective than a handwarmer in a glove.

Good idea with the mittens. My hands actually sweat in my warm gloves so taking them off and putting them on is a pain. Mittens would be easy to take on and off. Thanks!

Tourny - doesn't matter.
Casual - I won't play if it's under 30. I loathe wearing extra clothing when throwing because it ****s up my form and timing.
