The Bracket

The bracket is the mechanism by which the tournament is conducted. At each regional, there are two brackets – one for baseball, and one for softball and soccer.

The Rules

– There is a maximum game length of seven innings in each of the three sports. If a game is tied after seven innings, the game goes into extra innings. – Teams are awarded two points for each win. A team that loses a game is also awarded one point. – A team that advances to the finals is awarded two bonus points. A team that wins the tournament is awarded four bonus points. – A team’s total points are added up, and the top four teams at each tournament earn a state tournament berth.

The Field

In baseball, the 16 teams at each regional are made up of the 15 best District winners, plus the team that wins the District at-large bid. In softball and soccer, the 32 teams at each regional are made up of the 31 best District winners, plus the team that wins the District at-large bid.

Rankings
