Friday's marathon Game 3 featured a 14th-inning stretch and reopened concession stands

During a regulation 9-inning baseball game, we generally know when certain off-field events are going to occur. In the middle of the seventh inning, fans will get a chance to stretch their legs and sing a tune. At the conclusion of that, concession stands will usually close. If applicable, a mascot race may occur a couple innings prior to that. But, once a game goes into extra innings, there is no script.
