Rule Clarification for 2021 ...Drop Dead, Revert Back (DDRB)
--Before the 3rd out, if the home team has tied or taken the lead when the clock expires the inning is considered complete and the runs scored counts.
--Before the 3rd out, if the home team fails to tie or take the lead before time expires, that entire inning does not count towards the final score. In other words, the score "reverts back" to the score at the end of the previous inning.
Let's all recognize that DDRB can cause confusion and some times teams can get "creative" in having the clock work in their favor. While the rules would support "stalling tactics" or the opposite...the spirit of DDRB for our Fall Ball league is to maximize the game time teams have to play their games and keep the remaining games on schedule.
