In a nine inning game, to become an official game, it must go 5 1/2 innings if the home team is ahead, or 6 complete innings if the home team is behind.
Since professional baseball games are normally nine innings long, the fifth inning is used as the threshold for an official game, since it is roughly the halfway mark.
A normal softball game in the NCAA is seven innings. In order to meet the requirements for an official NCAA softball game, the game must finish five full innings if it has been stopped due to rain. This means that both the home and away teams must be both at bat and on the field five times. Another way for the game to become official is for the home team to be ahead by eight runs after five innings have been played.
Once the game is started it must go 5 and a half innings to become official, if it does not the stats do not count, and the game is replayed. If it does, whenever the game is called it counts as an official game no matter how many innings are played and the stats count. If it goes further than 5 1/2 but the score is tied the game counts as a draw and re-scheduled but the stats are counted from the draw.
