Seeding for Bracket Games:
If three or more teams are tied with the same record in a division, head-to-head may or may not be used to break ties.
Once a level of tie-breaker is used, we DO NOT revert back to any steps of the tie-breaking procedure. We will continue on down the list until all ties are broken
1.Highest Winning Percentage (number of wins divided by number of games with a result (ties eliminated form formula))
4.Runs allowed per game avg
5.Runs differential (+/- of runs per game)
If a team is playing an extra bracket game, the runs allowed and the Win/Loss in that game will not count towards your total. However, the result of the game (win/loss) will be used in head-to-head consideration if a tie in pool play occurs.
In case of a rain-shortened tournament, Bracket games can be deemed official after 2 ½ innings of play (with home team winning) or 45 minutes of elapsed game time. This policy will only be used through Bracket play. In addition, if games are cancelled due to weather, there may be an adjustment in application of the tie-breaking procedures.
If you lose a game because of not putting a roster online and you are still not eliminated from the event you can pay $100 and we will fix your roster. Players have to be legal age.
If event Rains out in the "IF" game and we do not have a clear winner after 2 1/2 innings then both teams will be Declared Co Champions (teams will flip for 1st and 2nd place awards)
No Refunds for the Tournament or for Weekend passes after event Starts
