This is a reminder to Coaches, Officials and Administrators with regard to interrupted games. During the regular season, including district seeded games, for games that are interrupted due to weather or darkness and called (ended) by the umpire, the game is final if it meets NFHS rules requirements for a shortened game — at least 4 1/2 innings with the home team ahead or five full innings. (Baseball Rule 4-2-2, 4-2-3; Softball Rule 4-2-2, 4-2-3).

For postseason (District, Region and State), all games must be played to completion by rule.
