Suspended/Postponed Game Procedure

Game suspensions/postponements are a common occurrence in outdoor sports such as baseball and eventually, a game will be interrupted and forcefully ended due to inclement weather, or a number of other contingencies. Nevertheless, the game's pitch counts need to be submitted to and stored in the C2C database.


NOTE:

The PitchLimit application will maintain your user session and recorded counts as long as you remain logged into the app and do not end your browser session. In times of limbo, when the games completion status is uncertain, none of your data will be lost if there are extended periods of inactivity by the users.



Scenario 1 : Game Suspends in Middle of Inning
(At least one (1) pitch thrown by either team's pitcher)

In the event of a game suspension/postponement occurring during the middle of an inning, all users (OPCR and PCR) will treat the situation as if the inning and game had ended.


Steps:

At the time of the official ruling of the game being suspended/postponed...

  1. The OPCR and PCR users will submit the inning's pitch count's
  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 database.


Scenario 2 : Game Suspends at the Start of the Inning
(No pitches thrown by either team)

If a game suspension/postponement is ruled at the beginning of an inning, where neither team's pitchers have thrown a pitch, all users (OPCR and PCR) will still need to treat the situation as if the inning and game had ended. However, the PitchLimit application will not recognize that a new inning was ever recorded.


Steps:

At the time of the official ruling of the game being suspended/postponed...

  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 prevoius 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, simply click the 'ADD INNING' button from the "Game Complete" screen to resume tracking pitches.
