INNINGS (_plural_ INNINGS) * (baseball) plural form of _inning_ * (cricket) One side's or individual's turn to bat (from when the first player begins to bat, until the last player is out,) or the runs scored during those timeframes. * (UK) The time during which any party is in possession of power; a turn of any kind. * (UK, euphemistic) lifespan * 1994, John Lehmann, Alan Ross, Sebastian Barker, _The London Magazine_ Forty-odd. That's a better INNINGS than Mozart's thirty-five. Only a moderate knock perhaps in an era brimming with space age technology, and transplants, and artificial hips etcet, but still higher than Mozart's. * 2007, Roger F. Peters, _Police Under Pressure: A Donkey on the Edge_, Roger Peters (ISBN 9780646471051), page 22 My mother-in-law died at 89 years of age, while sad and as you might expect, we used the phrase “she had a good INNINGS”. * 2009, Mark Radcliffe, _Thank You for the Days: A Boy's Own Adventures in Radio and Beyond_, Simon and Schuster (ISBN 9781847377166) He was the first of my grandparents to die but none of them made it much past seventy, although that was very much looked on as 'a decent INNINGS' in early-seventies England. * 2010, Jacqueline James M P, _An Ignoble End_, AuthorHouse (ISBN 9781452055510), page 79 You can only say, she had a good INNINGS, so many times. I suppose seventy nine isn't so bad. It's a damn sight more than I can expect. * 2012, Peter Fitzpatrick, _The Two Frank Thrings_, Monash University Publishing (ISBN 9781921867248), page 523 Like father, like son. Sixty-eight. Not such a bad INNINGS, really, when the old man was gone at fifty-three.
