I don't think so, just 5 innings or 4½ if the home team is winning.

I think they finish the game if it is tied or if the home team is losing and they haven't had their last at-bat.

Rule 4.12: SUSPENDED GAMES.
(a) A game shall become a suspended game that must be completed at a future date if
the game is terminated for any of the following reasons:
(1) A curfew imposed by law;
(2) A time limit permissible under league rules;
(3) Light failure or malfunction of a mechanical field device under control of the
home club. (Mechanical field device shall include automatic tarpaulin or water
removal equipment);
(4) Darkness, when a law prevents the lights from being turned on;
(5) Weather, if a regulation game is called while an inning is in progress and
before the inning is completed, and the visiting team has scored one or more
runs to take the lead, and the home team has not retaken the lead; or
(6) It is a regulation game that is called with the score tied.

Ok Thanks.

So they have to get through 4 1/2. Hence the numerous throws to first.

Is it me or does Shapiro sound more "human" now he's the president.

It's almost like a "i don't make the baseball decisions, so i can just say what i think" kind of approach.

There was still the normal company line about the market and "accepting the current climate" but, apart from that, he came across OK.

Never knew he let people hit the drum. I've only had a picture taken with him (obviously). I will make sure to hit the drum once when I am at the game this weekend.
