Playoff Tournament Tiebreakers
(Playoff Seeding will be completed before the start of Playoff Week 1 and Playoff Week 4)


Seeding Tiebreakers
  • Tiebreaker 1 - Overall Record
  • Tiebreaker 2 - Head-to-Head
  • Tiebreaker 3 - Division Record
  • Tiebreaker 4 - Fewest Runs Allowed (Team Defense)
  • Tiebreaker 5 - Most Runs Scored (Team Offense)
  • Tiebreaker 6 - Coin Flip
Playoff Tournament Tiebreakers - Willie Mays Bracket
  1. Run Differential (Run differential is calculated by subtracting runs allowed from runs scored. Best Run Differential will advance) Example: Team 1 (20 Runs Scored - 5 Runs Allowed = +15) / Team 2 (5 Runs Scored - 20 Runs Allowed = -15): Team 1 Advances (+15)
  2. Regular Season Head-to-Head
  3. Best Regular Season Record
Playoff Tournament Tiebreakers - Mantle, Williams, Clemente Brackets
  1. Tournament Head-to-Head
  2. If two teams are tied for the best record and have played each other in the tournament, the winner of that game advances. If two teams are tied for the best record but did not play each other in the tournament, the team with the best regular season record advances. If more than two teams are tied at the end of the tournament and one team has beaten all teams that it is tied with, that one team will advance, otherwise the team with the best regular season record advances.
  3. Regular Season Record (and tie-breakers, if applicable)
