The 2009 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.  Eventually, leagues will be part of "associations" and "federations" and there will be champs at each level that advance to the final bash.

 

In 2009, with 17 leagues, we're making that move to Federations.  Currently, there are 8 Federations in BWB - each with 2 leagues (and one with 3).  Five teams will make each Federation round.  The league champs, plus the top non-championship teams in the federation as wildcards (so 3 wildcards in most, 2 in the Eckersley Federation).  Teams will be picked as a wild card based on their Power Index Numbers in their federation.  The bottom 2 wild card teams (teams 4 & 5) will play each other to make a spot in the Federation Semifinals.

 

Each Federation crowns a champ...then the 8 remaining teams will play in a final bracket - seeded by Power Index (ranked over all BWB).  Confused?  You'll see how it plays out.

 

PRIZE - The winner of the Benchwarmer Bash will earn two free seasons for their winning team, in addition to the free season they may have won if they were a league champion.  The Bash runner up will earn one free season.
