USPBL 2.5 Rule
On July 12, 2018, The United Shore Professional Baseball League implemented a 2 hour and 30-minute time limit to its games. The USPBL is the first professional baseball organization to place time limits on games to help speed pace of play. Under the USPBL’s 2.5 rule, no new inning will begin after 2 hours and 30 minutes, and the team leading at the end of the inning after the time limit has been reached will be declared the winner.
In the event of a tied game at the time the 2.5-hour time limit has been reached, the USPBL will utilize its Extra Innings Rule as set forth in this FAQ document.
