Does anyone know what the rules are for inning and game length this pre-season? I was listening to the Pirates/Orioles game and the O's apparently decided to end the top of the first because of pitch count(?). And the teams previously agreed to nine innings, but it apparently could have gone as low as seven and in the middle of the game they decided to switch to eight.
ETA Just saw that Vi Ripken, wife of Cal Sr. and mother of Cal and Billy passed away. Her grandson, Ryan, played for the O's in their game today.
