I misprinted the 15-run rule in the Handbook and Guidebook. It should state “after 2 ½ or 3 complete innings”. You definitely wouldn’t need to play the bottom half of the inning if it wasn’t necessary. I’ve also clarified this in both the Coaches and Officials rules presentation too. So, hopefully this will clear it up.
