In baseball, an inning is divided into two parts: the top and the bottom. The top half of the inning is when the away team bats and the bottom half is when the home team bats. Each team gets three outs per inning. Outs are used to keep track of how many batters a team has faced. The number of outs a team has is written on a scoreboard as a number followed by an "X". For example, if the home team has two outs, it would be written as "2X".
In baseball, there are three outs in an inning. Each team gets three outs per inning, and there are nine innings in a game. So, in a game of baseball, there are 27 outs.
A regulation softball game consists of seven innings. Each half inning consists of three outs. There are a total of 21 outs in a regulation softball game.
Innings in cricket are broken up into overs, with each over consisting of six balls. An over is complete when the bowler has bowled six balls, and the batsman is out when he is dismissed. There are a total of ten wickets in an innings, and the batting team is out when they have lost all ten wickets. The bowling team is also out if they fail to bowl out the batting team within the allotted overs.
In football, an inning is when the offensive team is on the field and the defensive team is off the field. There are four downs in an inning, and each down is worth six points. The offensive team gets three downs to score, and the defensive team gets four downs to prevent the other team from scoring.
In basketball, an "out" is defined as a period of play during which a team is not in control of the ball. There are three outs in each half of an inning. The number of outs in an inning can vary depending on the league, but in the NBA, there are four quarters, each consisting of 12 minutes. Therefore, there are a total of 48 minutes in an NBA game, and each team has 24 outs.
Inning in hockey is a term used to describe the specific playing period in ice hockey, each of which is divided into two halves. There are three 20-minute periods in a regulation game, and each team has up to six players on the ice, including the goaltender. Substitutions are unlimited during regulation play. The clock is stopped when the puck is not in play, so the length of an inning can vary. The game is also divided into thirds, with each team having a total of 18 players, two goaltenders, and six skaters per side. There are also two lines of three forwards each, and two defensemen. The game is played with a red line and two blue lines dividing the rink into three zones. The center zone is neutral, and each team has its own zone at each end of the rink. The object of the game is to score goals by shooting the puck into the opponent's net. There are three periods in a regulation game, and each period is 20 minutes long. The clock is stopped when the puck is not in play, so the length of an inning can vary. There are a total of six players on the ice, including the goaltender, for each team. Substitutions are unlimited during regulation play. The game is divided into thirds, with each team having a total of 18 players, two goaltenders, and six skaters per side. There are also two lines of three forwards each, and two defensemen. The game is played with a red line and two blue lines dividing the rink into three zones. The center zone is neutral, and each team has its own zone at each end of the rink. The object of the game is to score goals by shooting the puck into the opponent's net.
When playing volleyball, there are a total of six outs per inning. Three outs are required for a team to score a point, with the fourth out being a free ball. Each team is allowed to hit the ball up to three times before it must be returned over the net, with the exception of the free ball. The free ball can be hit any number of times before it must be returned. The sixth out is a "side out" and occurs when the serving team hits the ball into the net or out of bounds, or when the receiving team fails to return the ball.
In tennis, an inning is defined as a unit of play during which each player serves twice in turn. As such, there are a total of four service games in an inning. In terms of counting outs, tennis employs the use of a point system. A player receives a point for each game won, and the first player to reach four points wins the inning. As such, there are a total of four points up for grabs in an inning of tennis.
In golf, an "out" is defined as the number of strokes a player has taken on a given hole minus the par for that hole. For example, if a player takes four strokes to complete a hole that has a par of three, then they have one "out." The total number of "outs" for a player in a given round of golf is equal to the sum of their "outs" on each individual hole. There is no set number of "outs" in an inning of golf. However, typically, a player will have four "outs" per hole, for a total of 18 "outs" in a round of golf. This can vary depending on the course layout, the difficulty of the holes, and the player's skill level.
There are six outs in an inning because the sixth out is a “walk”. A walk results when a batter reaches first base on a hit by another player, sac fly, fielder’s choice, or wild pitch. When a batter walks, the next batter gets to bat, and the pitching team starts an inning with two less people on the field (since they have to replace the man who walked).

Baseball is a very sport, and for that reason, it is important to make sure the game does not last too long. Most games do not last more than six innings because as the game goes on, pitching gets better and it becomes very difficult to score runs. This was why baseball bosses decided to set an innings limit at nine players and nine innings.
The 9th inning is the last inning in the game, and it can end before three outs are made. If the home team is in the lead at the end of the top-half of the 9th inning, play will end immediately.

The length of the first and second halves of a football game is due to concerns about the amount of time it would take for a full game to be completed. At its inception, a football match was originally timed at two hours. Because two teams played one half each, each team would have played three-quarters of a complete game. By dividing the playing time into two halves, each team played the entire game and there was no potential for lengthy delays due to touchdowns or extra points.
An inning lasts 3 minutes.
The NFL game typically lasts an hour and 12 minutes.
That is a bit of a complicated answer. There are actually nine players on the field at one time in baseball, but it's customary for one player (usually the pitcher) to be "out". This means that whenever there is an out, either because the batter hits a ball into foul territory or because the catcher grabs ahold of a loose ball and throws it to first base, one player of the team that was not originally on the field has now been replaced by someone else - which is why there are six outs in an inning.
The 9th inning is the last inning in the game.
A baseball game consists of nine innings.
A Major League Baseball game is meant to go nine innings, but things don't always go according to plan. Weather can play a factor in how long a game goes, or if a game is even played at all. There are usually 93 players on each team and it takes six outs per inning. That means there are usually three hours and fifty-six minutes of baseball action in an MLB game.
In baseball, innings are completed in three parts: the first, second and third. The first inning is when the team batting first begins its turn at bat. An inning can consist of any number of balls, with each team taking an equal number of turns at bat. The second inning starts when the designated hitter comes up to bat and continues until either the manager declares a ball game or the lead runner on the batting team reaches first base. The third inning begins when someone on the pitching team tires and ends with whichever team has the most runs scored at that point. In football, an "inning" is one quarter of a 60-minute game, which consists of four 15-minute periods.

A three-period game in ice hockey is merely an outgrowth of a game that used to be played with two periods. It is possible for a sport to have more than three periods, but this is very rare. Most multi-period games have four or five periods because this is the length of a full NHL game.
Originally, hockey was played in two halves of a game. But at the end of each half, the ice was so rutted and covered with snow that it slowed the game way down. So they changed it to three periods of 20 minutes each to give them a chance to clean the ice one more time.
Floorball and ice hockey games are typically divided into three periods. A fourth period of overtime may be played in the event of a tie at the end of the third period.

Golf has nine holes, so it has 18 rounds.
The game is divided into innings, with each team batting and fielding in turn. The top of the inning (or first half-inning) is started by the home plate umpire calling "Play!" The players on the home team take their places at the batting cages, and the pitcher goes out to the mound. After each pitch, the batter can hit a ball or run. The game is stopped when one side gets all its players off the field, or when time runs out. In between innings, the umpire keeps track of how many outs there are in each half-inning.
In order for there to be 6 outs in an inning, the first baseman (or any player at bat) must reach first base. If a runner on first strikes out and reaches second base before the first baseman can touch first, then the third out is recorded and the inning continues with the top of the second inning.
There is no official rule that states a team must get four outs in order to win the game, but almost all modern baseball games require at least that many. If there are still runners on base at the end of the half-inning, the opposing team can attempt to tie or win the game by scoring runs.

In baseball, an inning is traditionally twenty minutes long. This can be calculated by dividing nine innings (three hours) into twenty minutes.
When the fielding team have got three hitters (or runners) out.
Innings begin with the pitcher receiving the ball and intending to throw it to the first baseman. The first baseman tries to Field the Ball (catch and throw) before it hits the ground, then tags up runner on base, who is running towards home plate. If runner is caught, that makes one out and gives pitcher a new bat. If runner reaches home plate before being caught, that's an RBI and advances that team's run counter.
If one team has completed all of their scheduled innings, while the other team has not, then the initial team is said to have set a "target", which is the number of runs they have scored plus one, that the other team must "chase". If the chasing team manages to achieve the target, their innings is ended and they win.
