Metro Division News

The Condors are the 2017 Metro Division second half and overall Season's Champs.

It was a close race between the Condors and the Lions for first place going into today's games. The Condors won both of their games today. The Lions lost both of their games. Today's games made it mathematically impossible for any other team but, the Condors to win first place. The Condors led the whole second half of the season. They played smart and managed well. Congratulations to the Condors for a great season. The Condors will be the 1st Seed in the playoffs. The Lions will be the 2nd Seed in the playoffs.

PLAYOFF RULES AND FORMAT:

All Playoff Series are best of 3 format.
The Highest Seed in any series is the HOME TEAM in Games 1 and 3 (if needed)
All Playoff Games (except Game 3 in the Finals if necessary) are time limited as follows:
After 50 minutes of play from the 1st pitch of the game, the Umpire will announce that the next inning will be the last inning (open).
An inning is deemed to begin immediately following the 3rd out of the preceding inning. For example, if the 5th inning ends BEFORE the 50-minute mark, the 6th inning has been deemed to have commenced and therefore the teams will play the 6th inning and the 7th inning.
There will be ONLY a 10-minute break between games.
Teams may play with 9 or more regular roster players. Teams with less than 9 regular roster players available to play shall forfeit the game. If the first game of a series is forfeited there will be a 10 minute grace period before the 2nd game is also declared a forfeit.
There is to be no providing of a "catcher" under any circumstances if a team is shorthanded.
There will be NO POOL PLAYERS available in the playoffs with the exception that if a team does not have a player who has served as a Pitcher during the season and that such absence has been announced to the Division Coordinator before the end of the regular season, the Metro Division Coordinator will attempt to assign an appropriate pitcher, if available.

The Lions are the 2017 Metro DIVISION First HALF SEASON CHAMPIONS

As we were going into the last week of the first half of the season just about any team could win. All the teams very close in the standings. Who was available to play for your team this last week did matter. Whichever team makes the fewer errors in the games will win the first half of the season.
On Wednesday June 28 the Lions swept the two games against the Condors. The first game was very close with the Lions winning it 7 to 6 in a low scoring exciting game to watch. Now the Lions had to wait until Friday for the outcome of the games between the Hawks and the Cougars. The Hawks were the favorite to win the games between the two teams. The Cougars bats were on fire. The Cougars swept the Hawks for one of the biggest upsets of the season dropping the Hawks into third place.
Way to go Lions and congratulations on a great 1st Half Season! They will be either the 1st or 2nd seed for the playoffs.
