3 Games Guaranteed

 

The format will be dependent on the number of teams at each age level.

 

11u will play 50/70 format with leads, steals and balks (as described in the Tournament Rules)

8u through 10u will play 46/60

 

8u will play with a maximum run rule per inning through the first five innings with unlimited runs in the 6th inning.  This format is meant to keep the game moving and preserve pitching. 

 

Pool Play Format:

 

Generally, the format will be pool play.  At the end of Pool Play, teams will be seeded.

 

For age levels with greater than five (5) teams (maximum of 8 teams),  two (2) divisions will be created,  a championship bracket and consolation bracket.

·       Championship Bracket (Seeds 1 through 4) ( two Games to win Championship)

o   1 vs. 4 & 2 vs. 3

o   Winner plays for Championship (1st and 2nd place awards to players)

·       Consolation Bracket (Seeds 5 through 8)

o   single consolation game - 5 vs. 6 and 7 vs. 8 format 

 

This structure is meant to:

·       keep top seeded teams playing against each other

·       avoid a 1 vs. 8 type of lopsided games

·       keep pitchers from being overworked (max 2 games on Championship day)

For Age Levels with four (4) or less teams:

·       Highest vs. lowest seed format

·       Odd number of teams – highest seed gets bye
