Playoff Seeds


The playoff seeds will be determined by the following criteria:

  • Winning percentage (ties count as half win / half loss), then

  • If tied, head to head competition, then

  • Runs allowed

In terms of head to head competition as a tiebreaker, all tied teams do not need to play one another as long as one team played both. For example, if one team beat all the other teams, they would get the better seed. If one team lost to both teams, they would get the worse seed. If that doesn’t resolve the tie, you then look at the runs allowed to eliminate one of the teams.  If runs allowed is used for tiebreaker, the lowest runs allowed will get the better seed.  Then, we revert back to head to head competition for the remaining teams.


Playoff Brackets - U12 tournament has 13 teams, so top 3 teams will receive bye into quarterfinals.  U10 tournament has 11 teams, so top 5 teams will receive bye into quarterfinals.


5.  Rain Out Notices:  Check our web site (www.fybl.org) for rain out notification.  Look for the banner across the top of the welcome page.  We will try to update as soon as possible if the games are cancelled.

Fridays and Sundays are the usual days used for rain out games. If games are cancelled on a particular night, the games will move to next available rain out day. For example, Monday thru Thursday rainouts will be made up on Friday.  Saturdays would be made up on Sunday.  Let’s hope for a dry July!
