2019 Spring Playoff Structure

With 16 Teams in the League, only the TOP 8 TEAMS during the Regular Season will advance to the 2019 Durham Softball Spring Playoffs. The Teams that make the Playoffs will be determined by:

  1. Win-Loss Record.
  2. Head-to-Head Record.
  3. Run Differential.
  4. Runs Scored.

The Top 8 Teams will play a single elimination tournament to determine the winner.

To keep the Bottom 8 Teams interested, the Top 8 Teams will be “adopting” one of the other charities to also compete for their cause during the Playoffs. These Sponsors will receive an additional 50% of the donations won by each Team during the Playoffs. Partner Organizations will be assigned in reverse order of finish, with #1 paired with #16, #2 paired with #15, #3 paired with #14, etc.

  • Each Game will earn $50 for the Winning Team’s Charity, with their Partner Charity also receiving $25, for a total of a $75 donation per game.
  • The Championship Team will earn $200, with their Partner Charity also receiving $100, for a total of a $300 donation on the line during the Championship.
  • A total of $750 in donations will be awarded between our 16 Charities during the Playoffs.

Everyone is still encouraged to come out and watch the games, support our charities, and visit Bralie’s after the game for a free beer!
