If a team is playing an extra pool game, the runs allowed and the Win/Loss in that game will not count towards your total. However, the result of the game (win/loss) will be used in head-to-head consideration if a tie in pool play occurs.

In case of a rain-shortened tournament, Bracket games can be deemed official after 2 ½ innings of play (with home team winning) or 45 minutes of elapsed game time. This policy will only be used through Bracket play. In addition, if games are cancelled due to weather, there may be an adjustment in application of the tie-breaking procedures.

We do this process for each event on Monday, which may take up through midnight on Monday to completely update and reflect accurate results.
