After the team reaches mercy rule runs differential, the winning team will end the inning and will be allow to bat only 5 batters until runs differential is no longer subject to the mercy rule.
Just another ill-advised local rule that will just screw up the game and perpetuate the ignorance of those playing the game.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
