Posted by Crosstown Slo-pitch League at Jul 23, 2019 4:41PM PDT

Coaches: Playoffs: All playoffs are 2 game minimum…
All games are game time- default time. Coaches should print & keep schedule with them at games. Schedule will be on the web in Documents. (PDF files).
Rec B & C – There should be no need for the Flip-flop rule in the first round – time & light good .. and Home team does not bat if winning in the bottom of the last inning …. but it’s an umpire’s call due to dark/inclement weather..
Flip-flop rule in all 2nd rounds or more – If Visiting team is ahead by 6-11 runs at the top of the last inning, then Home team bats twice in a row… Umpire’s call…
Rec B – 6 teams advance to playoffs …. 2 pools RR …. Pool A (1st, 4th, 6th) & Pool B (2nd, 3rd, 5th) … semis & Finals best of 3 games (1st game first night, 2nd & 3rd (if necessary) 2nd night) Jul 29- Aug 8
Rec C – top 8 teams in each division C1 & C2 – Jul 29 – Aug 15th … 2 pools – Pool A (1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th ) & Pool B ( 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th) – 2 teams from each pool advance, 2 semis & Final all best of 3 … 1st game 1st night 2nd & 3rd if needed – on the 2nd night…
Rec D – All games at Strathcona Pk on Sunday Aug 11th .. Hopefully there will not be need for the Flip-flop rule in the first round unless time restraint. Then only if Visiting team ahead more than 6 runs at the top of the last inning… Home team bats twice .. Umpire’s call… in the semis & Final we just need a winner!
