PLAYOFF RULES CHANGES & UPDATES

MUSTANG DIVISION ONLY

1.        Pitching .  Zero days rest for 25 pitches vs. the current 20 pitch rule.   Just like all the other thresholds, if pitcher starts a batter with 24 pitches and finishes on 30 pitches it will revert back to 25 and zero days rest will be required.    If anyone uses this rule, they will need to make sure their book reflects it so they can produce it to the other manager if they ask to see it.  All other pitching rules shall remained the same.
 

GAME SCORE POSTING RULE - ALL DIVISIONS

During the tournament the winning team must post game results on the same day the game is completed.  If the winning manager fails to do so they automatically give the opposing manager in their next game the choice of being home or visitor and choice of dugout.

Following are the Tie Break Rules that shall be applied to the final regular season standings to establish playoff seeding (Mustang separate rules are below):

MUSTANG DIVISIONS

In order to break ties in regular season play to accurately slot teams into the seeded double elimination tournament, Newport Beach Baseball Association has adopted the following rules to break ties:

1. Winning percentage.  
Highest of: (Total Number of Wins plus (Total Number of Ties times 0.5)) divided by Total Number of Games played. This could also be written as: "(wins + (ties * 0.5)) / games"
2. Head to Head Winning percentage
Highest of all teams tied after computing #1 of: (Total Number of Wins against tied teams in #1 plus (Total Number of Ties against tied teams in #1 times 0.5)) divided by Total Number of Games played against tied teams in #1
3. Head to Head run differential
Highest of: Total number of runs scored when playing all tied teams in #2 - total number of runs allowed when playing tied teams in #2
4. Runs against overall
Lowest of: Total number of runs allowed for all games played in the division
5. Runs for overall
Highest of: Total number of runs scored for all games played in the division
6. Number of forfeits
Lowest of: total number of forfeits in the season
7. Coin flip
The two managers meet with the division rep and the division rep will toss a coin. The manager with the team name that would come first sorted alphabetically is the one that calls "heads" or "tails" while coin is in the air. If more than two teams are still tied after #6, coin flips occur between all managers once and the manager with the highest number of "wins" will get the better seed. Coin flips continue until all ties are broken.
