Team League Rankings for 2013 Group Play - (As of Aug 9th)
This chart shows the league standings used to rank teams before
their group play to determine their seeding. Seedings will remain after Group Play to rank teams in the Dazzling Dozen© round...vying to enter the Elite Eight double-elimination round.
-- DOUBLE-ELIMINATION SEPT. 7th - (The play on Sept. 7th allows the Elite Eight teams to play a double-elimination format. The championship game will play a full 7 innings with no time limits.)
Teams will be seeded for the Play-in and Elite Eight rounds (using their league rankings as of August 9th retained for the championship rounds). Again this year, if it rains, some teams may finish their group play or win a tie-breaker game coming out of the group play, and play in single elimination, if necessary. In such a case, the commissioner may deem that the remaining tournament games will be all single-elimination format or that only the final four teams play in double-elimination brackets because of persistent rain.
This year, the Dazzling Dozen© of teams are slated again to come from the group play competition.
The top four ranked teams will be separated in each of the four sections of the "Elite Eight" and paired as closely as possible to traditional pairings - highest ranked vs lowest, number two vs second lowest, and teams ranked in the middle vs others with mid-ranged rankings.
