HOME RUN DERBY
Friday night -- 7:00 pm start.
Each team will nominate one player to participate. More format information is TBD based on number of participants in town on Friday night.
Pool Play: The 18 teams will be split into 6 hubs of 3 teams. Each team will play their hub mates once, then each team will be ranked 1, 2, or 3 in their hub. For the third pool play game, the Crossroads Games, teams will play the team with their same ranking from their matched hub. Matched hubs are A&B, C&D, E&F.
Bracket Play: The top 14 teams advance to the Crossroads Bracket. Meanwhile, seeds 15-18 will have to play a Death Game to enter the Crossroads Bracket. In the Crossroads Bracket, teams will be divided into four (4) double elimination brackets, after each loss teams will switch brackets (view the Crossroads Bracket here). After each of the four double elimination brackets are complete, the #RoadToTheDirtyard is complete and the four bracket champions will compete in a single elimination final four bracket at the Dirtyard.
No official practice times will be available Friday night. However, a set of bullpens and a limited hitting area will be open at the Dirtyard.
