The brackets have been posted. As we get closer please keep checking back for changes. Any team that fails to field a team will forfeit and their opponent will advance to the next round. We have already seen this in a 12U bracket and we were able to change the times a little for other teams so they show up a little later.
There is an important rule change for the playoffs. We WILL NOT be doing 65 minute drop dead. Instead we are going to have a 65 minute time limit where you cannot start any new inning after 65 minutes (except ties). *** Any inning that starts after the 59th minute where the game is tied -- the inning will be played with international tie breaker rule (runner starts on second). So if you start a new inning between 60 and 65 minutes and the game is tied, you must start with a runner on second. If after the 65th minute the game is tied after an inning ends you'll be starting an extra inning with the runner on second.
We have to have the games end because most fields are going until 5pm and later. In the very unlikely event of a tie and an inning ends after 80 minutes -- the higher seed will get the win. No new inning after 80 minutes - NO EXCEPTIONS.
Higher seed gets to choose home or away.
Best of luck and have fun. It's been an absolute joy watching all the young ladies playing Softball this fall. Thank you for choosing to play in the RYFSA fall league.
As always, feel free to write with any feedback, criticism or suggestions. We'd love to continue to improve the experience for all the players, coaches, parents and fans involved.
