The team listed on the top of the bracket will occupy the 1st base dugout. A coin flip will determine Home & Visitor. In Championship games, the team in the winners bracket will be the Home team. In IF games, Home & Visitor will be determined by a coin toss.
Our Spring tie-breaker rule is in effect:
The batters making the last two outs of the previous inning will be put on 2nd base and 3rd base respectively. Each inning will start with one (1) out. The game will be extended a maximum of two (2) innings. If the score is still tied after two additional innings the game will be decided by a coin toss.
Scoreboards are not available, it’s recommended that each team keep their own scorebook.
