ICBA To Use Score Sheets At all Divisions during 2013 Season
January 31, 2013
The Inter County has mandated at all Home Games for teams they will be required to use the Inter County Score Sheet given to teams at the Spring Coaches meeting. The Home team will be responsible for keeping track of all items associated with the game from pitch count, who is pitching & catching along with any suspensions being served at the game. At the end of the game they will ask the umpires to sign off on the game and give a copy of the bottom game sheet to the visiting team and keep the two top copies for the season. At any time during the season a team may be asked by the convenor or P & D to send the top copy of the game sheet in for further use. Visiting teams should not use the Inter County game sheets when not at home but rather have a score book they can use when on the road.
How Many Innings Constitues A Game?
A re-occurring item that has come to our attention this spring is how many innings must be played before a game is a game? We use Rule 4.10 (c) of the official rules of Baseball to interpret an official game. If a game is called after 5 innings or 4 1/2 innings if the home team is ahead it is an official game. Any thing less than the above is called no game and must be replayed in its entirety.
