Special Case - Incomplete Game

What To Do In The Case of an Incomplete Game

Q: What do you do in the case of a rain-out or any other situation in which a game will not end as intended?

Simple; just end the game at that moment and pitches will be recorded in the C2C database.


Let's explore a couple of scenarios that will help you understand the correct way to do just that.

If you believe there is a chance that your game may be completed after a delay, simply stay logged in to the app and you can pick up where you left off.

If you are ever disconnected from the app, any counts you have recorded mid-inning will be lost. However, any innings that have been submitted by the OPCR will be retained.

Scenario 1 : Game Ends at the Start of an Inning

In this scenario, an inning just started and the game was ended before either team's pitcher threw a pitch.


In this case, all users will submit zero (0) pitches and end both the inning and game. Pitch Limit will not record the new inning, but all previous innings and pitches will be recorded.

Steps to Take:

At the time of the official ruling of the game suspension or postponement...

  1. The OPCR and PCR users will submit as if counts were recorded for the inning.
  2. The OPCR user will then be brought back to the previous inning's "Inning Complete" screen where he/she will then select the "Game Over" button the end the competition.

If the game was mistakenly ended, or has resumed progress, simply click the 'ADD INNING' button from the "Game Complete" screen to resume tracking pitches.

Scenario 2 : Game Ends in the Middle of an Inning

In this scenario, an inning was in progress when the game ended.

In Progress Definition

An inning can be considered to be 'in progress' once a pitcher from either team has thrown at least one (1) pitch during the inning.


In this case, all users (OPCR and PCR) will treat the situation as if the inning and game had ended.

Steps to Take:

At the time of the official ruling of the game suspension or postponement...

  1. The OPCR and PCR users will submit the inning's pitch counts
  2. The OPCR user will Verify that the counts are correct and submit from the OPCR:Verify Counts screen
  3. The OPCR user will then select the "Game Over" button from the OPCR: Inning Complete screen to end the competition

By ending the competition within the PitchLimit application, the OPCR user is officially submitting the game's pitch count data to the C2C database.
