Q. How is the tournament played and how are teams seeded?
A. Each team will play 4 pool games in random order within their
division, which will determine specific seeding. Teams are pre-seeded
only into National (higher) and American (lower) divisions. That
determination is made first by prior year placement and results. Teams
that win the American division are likely to move up the following
year; likewise, teams that do not have any success in National division
play, will likely move down. The tournament director and committee may
move teams between divisions based on specific considerations such as
recent tournament performance or manager requests. After pool play,
teams will be ranked within division by their won-loss percentage, with
ties resolved by head-to-head competition, total runs allowed, then a
coin toss. The tournament committee, in rare circumstances, may
re-balance seeds between divisions, if any are determined to be out of
line. In 2016, the 65+ teams will play-off in one division; for the 60+
teams, 6 teams pre-seeded National and 6 teams pre-seeded American will
be placed in 3 4-team divisions, adding a Central division, determined
by pool records.
