How are the finals determined?????

With the number of teams participating in the Lions Tournament, the question of how are the finals determined is always raised.  Basically put, the two teams with the best record (4-0) will play in the finals.

Question - what if there are more than two teams with a 4-0 record?

Well, every year since we expanded past 24 teams, we have had that occur.  The two teams that have given up the fewest number of runs will play in the finals.

If two teams are tied, then we will compare the overall records of the four teams that each of them played.  The team that played the tougher schedule when comparing W-L records within the tournament will advance.

If there is still a tie, we will look at total bases, but to date that has not happened. 

 

It is not a perfect science and we do the best we can.  With this years field of 62 teams, we are going to have more than 2 teams that are 4-0.  We will do the best we can.

 

Why don't we do a bracket?  The majority of the coaches don't want one.  One of the special and unique things about our tournament and something that has caused it to grow by leaps and bounds are these facts:

Teams do not play league opponents;

Teams do not play the same schools year in and year out;

Teams and parents know who they play, where they play and when they play well in advance.  This allows for them to make plans to attend and allows for coaches and players to make plans to do other things over there break.

 

If you have a suggestion as to how we can improve the tournament - we will listen!
