1971 August stats posted

The stats and power rankings for August 1972 are now posted.

In the AL East, my Elephants are still in the lead but a five game sweep loss to red hot Route 66 lowered their lead over the Gladiators to just four games. In the West, the Hot Rods (very hot!) have already won 102 games with a month to go and have a whopping 22 1/2 game led over the Wild Weasels.

In the NL East, the Totems are also in control, with a 22 game lead over the Seals while in the West. the Voyageurs are 6 1/2 ahead of the Beavers.

1971 - Wild Card official

We will be adding two Wild Card per conference for the 1971 Season.

In addition to switch to Best of 7 format for both main playoff series in each conference, in the event of a Wild Card Tie, the following would apply:

There would be a best of 3 series to determine the winner, with best H2H record getting Home field. If that’s tied, better run differential get home field.

In the event of a 3 way tie for a spot, the team with the highest run differential will be automatically put into the 3 game playoff, with the lower two teams playing a 1-game play in game, with better H2H record hosting, or best run differential.

In the event of a 4 way tie for a spot, the Highest Run differential will play the lowest in a one game play in game, and two middle teams would also play a 1 game play in game to get to the best of 3.

Hopefully that covers almost all the bases. Really looking forward to these changes. Going to make for some very exciting playoff races!!!!
