TENTATIVE SCHEDULE: TIEBREAKERS AND PLAYOFFS

Written by - Posted 2013-09-22 16:35 in News

112 games were NOT enough to settle the regular season. We’ve got four more games to go to break some ties, all of which count as regular season games.

Two divisions must be settled, and then three teams will be tied for the final Wild Card spot and will have to play two tie breaker games to determine the #6 seed in the postseason.

Teams that have clinched seeds are: #1 DC Twits, #2 Superman’s Wheelchair, #5 Nasty Boys.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29

Division Champion Tie Breakers

  • 10:30 AM – EASTERN: Canvassers at Gumballers (Blue)
  • 10:30 AM – SOUTHERN: Moose Knuckles at Suns Out Guns Out (Red)

The winners of the Division tie breakers will have the #3 and #4 seeds in the postseason. The losers of those two games will move to a three game tiebreaker to determine the final Wild Card, the #6 seed. The team in that tiebreaker already is the Ha’chi Mountaineers.

Those teams will be seeded based on head-to-head if possible, then run diff in those head-to-head games, then overall run diff. The team with the best tiebreaker will play the winner of a game with the other two. The winner of game 2 will claim the #6 seed in the playoffs.

2nd Wild Card Tie Breakers

  • 11:30 AM – Game 1: C Team at B Team (Green)
  • 12:30 PM – Game 2: Winner of Game 1 at A Team (Green)

The four possible combinations of teams in the tie-breaker are:

A – Canvassers
B – Moose Knuckles
C – Ha’chi Mountaineers
A – Canvassers
B – Suns Out Guns Out
C – Ha’chi Mountaineers
A – Gumballers
B – Moose Knuckles
C – Ha’chi Mountaineers
A – Gumballers
B – Suns Out Guns Out
C – Ha’chi Mountaineers

These games all count as regular season games. Once they are over, the Wild Card series will begin, the first round of the playoffs.

Wild Card Series #1

  • 1:30 PM – Game 1: #6 Seed at #3 Seed (TBA)
  • 2:30 PM – Game 2: #3 Seed at #6 Seed (TBA)
  • 3:30 PM – Game 3: #6 Seed at #3 Seed (TBA) if necessary

Wild Card Series #2

  • 1:30 PM – Game 1: #5 Nasty Boys at #4 Seed (TBA)
  • 2:30 PM – Game 2: #4 Seed at #5 Nasty Boys (TBA)
  • 3:30 PM – Game 3: #5 Nasty Boys at #4 Seed (TBA) if necessary

Should the #3 and #4 seeds both choose the same home field for Games 1 and 3, then Wild Card Series #2 will move down an hour later and start at 2:30. Additionally, teams from the same division cannot face each other in the wildcard round, so seeds might be swapped to avoid that.

The winners of the two wild card series will advance to the Division Championship Series, which will tentatively be held Saturday, October 5th.
