Video: The Rainy Review
Using the Official Baseball Rules (OBR), please answer the following scenario:
Going to the top of the 7th inning of a rain-plagued game, the home team is leading the visitors, 3-2. In the top of the 7th, the visiting team scores to tie the contest, 3-3. As in the video above, with the contest tied at 1:57 am local time, there are two outs and none on in the bottom of the 7th inning. B1 hits a fly ball to deep left field, where it is touched by fans around the fence-line, falls back into the field of play, and is called a home run by U3 as B1 makes his way around [and legally touches] the bases (see above video). During the ensuing instant replay review, which ends at 2:00am, the umpires decide to uphold the home run call, making the score 4-3. For the following scenarios (a) and (b), answer the following question: "How shall the outcome of this game be determined; what score shall appear in the box at the stoppage of play; will the contest be resumed at a future date?" (a) Upon returning to the field, the umpires decide to stop play due to weather. After another lengthy rain delay, the umpires determine play cannot continue. (b) Upon returning to the field, the umpires decide to stop play due to a local curfew which specifies that no game may continue past 2:00am local time. (c) Cite your rules for both parts (a) and (b). (1 pt for [a], 1 pt for [b], 1 pt for [c])
