MiLB has announced that they are going to experiment with new Extra Innings rules at the Rookie League level. For each extra inning there will be a runner on 2nd base to start the inning.
I would love to hear suggestions on how to mark these additional runners (the runner that will start on 2nd will be the batter in the slot immediately preceding the current inning's lead-off batter).
And, for those who are curious, for purposes of ER/uER, the runner is treated as if they reached on error, though not effecting the defensive team's error count.
I have been scoring games for more than 50 years and have gone back and forth with traditional and Retrosheet methods. But I think your system is going to be the one I stick with.
