I. Time Limit / Length of Game:  The scheduled length of any Adult League game played at Scott County Marshall park is seven (7) innings or sixty (60) minute time limit. Warm ups between innings are discouraged to ensure that a full seven innings may be played. No new inning may start after the time limit has expired. An inning is considered to be over and a new inning has started when the last out is recorded. If the time limit has expired in the middle of an inning the inning must be completed. If the time limit expires during the home teams at bat and they are winning the game then the game is over. In case of rain or any act of god, the game becomes official when the losing team has batted three (3) times. If the visiting team scores to go ahead in the top of the inning, the home team must get a chance to complete the inning. If the home team is losing and the game is called before they have a chance to complete the inning in which the visiting team went ahead then the score reverts back to the end of the previous inning.
