 How many innings? All Super 8 games will be nine innings.

 What if it rains? If weather is an issue, a decision on whether to play will be made three hours before the start. In the first three rounds, if a game is stopped after 4½ innings, it’s considered complete. Beginning in Round 4, games will be resumed from the point of stoppage.

 Where will games be played? In the first round, the higher seed will be the home team. In Rounds 2-6, games will be at a neutral site.

 Why not a complete schedule? With proms, graduations, and the weather, it’s a season of conflicts and changes. Fans should check for updates.

 Tickets: $10 for adults, $7 for students.
