PLAYOFFS ARE SET
Playoffs are set for the Richardson Pioneer Men’s Fastball League starting tonight. Attached is the complete draw.
After Consultation with Softball Sask and to follow the Province’s Covid Rules instead of a Playoff Tournament in one location the Playoffs are now hosted in the top seeds locations. The Playoffs will be a single elimination (no b-side) with Modified Triple Knockout. The Modified Triple knockout will consist of two 5-inning games and if those games are split the third game is an extra inning with the International Rule in Effect (9th batter starts on second base). In other word game three could end in one inning. Spectators must follow all Social Distancing Guidelines as be the Provinces current rules.
Round one starts tonight in Balcarres at 5:45 and Rhein at 6:15 with the Broncs hosting the Neudorf Posse and Rockets hosting the Fishing Lake Cubs. Round one resumes Saturday with the second place Wynyard Blues hosting the defending Champ Rosebud Royals, and Foam Lake Merchants at RE/MAX Diamond in Wadena to face the 3rd place Rosebud Jr. Royals.
Semi-Finals will be Sunday in the higher seeds location and times to be determined by the teams.
Finals dates are TBD but are to be finished on/before next Sunday the 16th. The location of those games will be in the higher seeds ballpark.
