Discussion: Open inning ruling

SSUSA staff what is going to be done to this region director that goes by his own rules every tournament?
It really makes our point even more valid now!!

Also is it normal to have a one game championship?meaning the looser coming through the bracket & beats the winners bracket team once and is champion?in a sanctioned tourney?

Its just softball.......Directors comment.

I am sure we are not the first ones to complain about the AZ region.

Discussion: Open inning ruling

Today in Phoenix we were playing in the semi finals and this happened.
As the lead off hitter came to the plate in the top of the 6th inning down 1 run the umpire calls that time has expired and this is the Open Inning.We were not given any previous inning notification.Was the umpire or umpires call correct since no pitch had been thrown yet to the batter in the top of the 6th inning?As you can imagine we did not score and the game ended.This is the first time that this has happened to us.Should we have completed that inning and the next inning be the open inning?Am I reading the rule below wrong?We have always been given previous inning notification until today.What is the call?Please help!

Rule book:
Prior to the ball being pitched to begin the fourth and subsequent innings, the
umpire will announce game time remaining to both managers. Because teams
are limited to five runs per inning, the umpire must also announce the last
inning to give both teams an opportunity to score as many runs as possible.
(See 5.5(1)) EXAMPLE: As soon as time has expired the umpire will announce
clearly to both teams that they will complete the inning in progress and play one
more, open inning. This announcement must be made before the last out of the

Thank You,just trying to understand this rule.
