The 2015 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 we made the move to Federations.  Currently, there are 8 Federations in BWB - each federation contains 5 or 6 leagues.  The league champion teams will make each Federation round - and 2 or 3 wild card teams will fill out the field of 8 teams in each Federation.


The existence and number of wild cards will continue to fluctuate annually as the number of leagues change.


Each Federation crowns a champ...then those 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.
