Coaches Notes

  1. Number of Games: Weather permitting, teams will play a minimum of 5 games and a maximum of 7 games. The number of games depends on qualifying for the Q-Games, and whether a Q-Game Replay is required.
  2. Doubleheaders: All teams will play twice on Monday, but no back-to-back games are scheduled. Some teams will play doubleheaders on Thursday if a Q-Game Replay is required.

  4. Teams do not drop out of contention for Division I until they lose 2 games. If after a Q-Game the two teams each have one loss, they will play a Q-Game Replay on Thursday morning.
  • Exception: the Lucky Dog will have lost 2 games before the Q-Games and will still have a chance to move to Div. I if they win the Q-Game and Q-Game Replay.
  1. Lucky Dog: after Opening Round play on Monday, one 0-2 team will qualify for the Q-Games. This is new to the bracket, as a result of a 20-team tournament, in order to supply an even 16 teams in the Q-Games. The Lucky Dog team will be required to win 2 Q-Games in order to advance to Div. I.
