The 2008 Benchwarmer Bash

Benchwarmer Baseball holds a final playoff tournament each fall, taking all the league champions and - for now - some wildcard teams and crowning a single champ for all of Benchwarmer Baseball.

 

The format - as BWB continues to grow - will be in flux from season to season.  Leagues are now part of "associations" and "federations" and there will be champs at each level that advance to the final bash.  However, the distribution of leagues at the moment doesn't allow for these preliminary rounds.

 

In 2008, with 11 leagues, we use last year's changes and play with them a little.  We take the 11 league champs plus 10 wild cards - the 10 non-championship teams with the highest Power Index Numbers.  The 11 league champs automatically advance to the second round.  The 10 wild cards play each other to reduce the total field to 16.  We will then re-seed all 16 teams by Power Index.

 

2008 Seeding:

BWB Bash Seeding - Second Round BWB Entrants
  1. St. Cloud - Chevy Chase Champ (Power Index: 1)
  2. Trinidad - Wild Card (Longball) (2)

  14. Lemon - Longball Champ (33)
  15. South Philly - K Street Champ (41)
  16. Roseville - Beatleball Champ (44)

 

We will not re-seed between rounds.  Home field advantage goes to the team with the higher original seed.
