• When two teams within a division have identical win-loss records, the winner of the head-to-head competition between those two teams shall advance.

  • When three teams within a division have identical win-loss records, the following will apply:
    • The least number of runs allowed by a team in all games played will advance that team as champion.  If a second place team is required revert back to number 1.

    • When all three teams have allowed the same number of runs, the team with the most net runs (runs scored minus runs allowed) will advance.  If a second place team is required revert back to number 1.

    • If teams remain tied after consideration of “a” and “b” the team that scored the most runs in their games will advance.  If a second place team is required revert back to number 1.

    • Any team or manager that violates or refuses the natural sequence of the above rule will be dismissed from tournament play and their games forfeited.
