ICBA Mercy Rule 2017 and Complete Game Length
The Inter County adopted the OBA Mercy Rule for the 2016 season at all divisions through out. This notice is a reminder to all teams and Local Umpiring. As a refresher the OBA rule is noted below.
P2.7 g) In all OBA (ICBA) games an 18 run mercy rule will apply after 3 innings (2 1/2 if the home team is ahead) or any inning there after, and a 10 run mercy rule will apply after 5 innings. ( 4 1/2 if the home team is ahead.) or any inning there after. This rule applies for any length game scheduled by ICBA unless otherwise noted.
All games played within ICBA that are scheduled for 7 innings shall be declared a complete game if 4 innings are completed (3 1/2 innings if the home team is ahead) and the game is called. For games that are scheduled for 9 innings the baseball rule of 5 innings played ( 4 1/2 if home team is ahead) will be used as a complete game if called.
