The 2009 Benchwarmer Bash

Federation Championships - Joe DiMaggio Federation

2009 marks the beginning of a change in the annual Benchwarmer Bash.  We start off with Federation Championships.  The 17 leagues are divided into 8 Federations (see the breakdown on the Leagues page).  In order to accommodate the one Federation with 3 leagues, yet still include at least 2 wild cards, five teams advance to the Federation Championships.  The league champions automatically qualify, plus the three non-championship teams with the highest power index values within the federation.

 

The first round is a play-in between the two lowest-ranked wild card teams.  The winner advances to the federation semifinals.  Teams are seeded based on their federation power index.  However, wild card teams are seeded at the bottom in all rounds.

 

Seeding - Federation Championship:

  1. Three of a Kind Champion: Vegas Strip - Power Index: 4
  2. Redbirds Champion: Prairie - Power Index: 7
  3. Hudson River (Three of a Kind) - Power Index: 1
  4. Manalapan (Redbirds) - Power Index: 2
  5. Detroit (Three of a Kind) - Power Index: 3
