Each team creates a new lineup for shootout and flips for home team. In the first inning, the last batter in the lineup is placed on 2nd base to start the inning. In the second inning, the last completed at bat is placed on 2nd. If both teams are tied at the end of the 2nd shootout inning, then Progressive ITB will start $15 PAP

Once the event is completed, the usssa.com system must be manually configured to show the final placings and award the correct amount of corresponding points. Until this is done, the results may not show as final or be correct. We do this process for each event on Monday, which may take up through midnight on Monday to completely update and reflect accurate results.
