Rainouts for 8/6 Update...

Posted by Montana Adult Baseball League on Aug 08 2015 at 12:29PM PDT in 2015 Season

Due to games being rained out today we will have to make some adjustments to the following games..

On Sunday the Warriors vs the Mustangs will play at 2:00pm on Heroes Field. This game will be to determine home field for the first round of playoffs on Tuesday. Since the Mustangs will only have 18 games played at the end of the regular season where as everyone else will have play 19 games. The 4th and 5th place team will be determined by total games won vs win %. In the event of a tie the following criteria will be used to determine who gets home field….

1. Total # of Wins
2. Series WL between the two teams.
3. Series total runs scored
4. Season total runs scored.

As it sits right now the Mustangs have scored 26 runs against the Warriors and the Warriors have scored 24 runs.

If the Mustangs win tomorrow they will take home field. If the Warriors win by 1 run the Mustangs will take home field. If the Warriors win by 2 runs or more they will take home field advantage either by Series total runs scored or by season total runs scored.

At 6:00pm tomorrow at Heroes, the Black Sox and Cubs will play to determine 1st and 2nd place. If Cubs win they will have tied the regular season winning percentage and have won the series against the Black Sox 3-2. If the Black Sox win they will take 1st place by win percentage.

The Brookies have guaranteed the 3rd place spot in the postseason and will play the loser of the Black Sox vs Cubs game on Wednesday night.

While this is not an ideal situation, this is the best option that we could come up with to allow for as close to a fair end to season for all teams. It is extremely unfortunate as all 6 games this weekend had an impact on the ordering for the postseason, but we can control the weather and this is the best with the cards that were dealt to us.
