39-2, 5 innings. No 3 inning mercy rule in Missouri for baseball.

When scores get into the "silly" situation the umpire must recognize that he is part of the problem.

We have talked about this many times on umpire boards.

Know how to control your game.

Classic nice guys finish last story ...

High school JV games where I'm from start no inning after 1:45 (or at least they're not supposed to). Working the plate on a nice Saturday afternoon for a JV doubleheader. 1st game goes without incident. Second game is 16-2 after 4 for the home team, and the time limit had run out. Visiting coach asks if we can play it out, being it's a nice Saturday and he wants his kids to get a couple more swings in .. chances are that it's over after the 1/2 inning anyway. I ask the home coach if he's ok with that (Yes, I know I shouldn't have done that) and he said that was fine (as he wanted to get his pitcher some more work). Visiting team scores 6 in the top of the 5th and comes back to win 21-17 in 3:15 for a 7 inning game. NO MORE MR. NICE GUY !!!
I'm due to make a great call. After all, I've been officiating a long time !!!

city championships 48-3 after 3 innings, it was scheduled to go minimum 6 innings but time ran out long before six innings.

It was 28-0 after 1 inning, 42 -1 after two. Biggest strikezone you could imagine after the first inning.
