This scorebook contains eight innings per game.
The number of innings in a regulation baseball game depends on the league and level of play. Little League and Middle School baseball games have six innings. Extra innings are possible, but often any extra innings are limited to a certain time and/or daylight.
Other leagues, such as Babe Ruth and American Legion, and High School level games have seven innings.
All leagues and the various baseball organizations have their own rules. For example, in a Babe Ruth game the game is ended in fifth inning by a “Mercy Rule”, which means that if one team is up by ten or more runs by the end of the fifth inning, the game is ended. Some leagues the runs number may be twelve. Other amateur leagues such as American Legion ball, there is no Mercy Rule.
College games can either have seven or nine innings, depending on the specific division level. Doubleheaders will be seven innings. They too have a Mercy Rule, but again depends on the league. Playoff and championship games are usually nine innings.
Professional baseball games, i.e., Minor League and Major League, play nine innings for a regulation game. However, in Minor League doubleheaders the games are seven innings in length. Games in the Major Leagues have no innings limit. Doubleheaders are played in full nine innings and have no Mercy Rule.
Keep in mind, there are always exceptions to the non-professional leagues. In general games are six, seven, and nine innings
