South Florida's Church Nationals February 7th-8th 2020
presented by: First Baptist Church of SW Broward
Games will be played at Brian Piccolo park in cooper city.
Tournament Format: This is a 3 game guarantee not to be confused with a triple elimination. If a
team loses its first two games it will automatically go into the “bottom of the barrel” bracket and
compete only against teams who lost their first two games. The winner of this will be the “bottom of
barrel” CHAMPION. Everyone else will continue to play a standard double elimination tournament.
Our tournament will be using the Trump Rock ASA 12" 52/300 Softball X-ROCK-RPASA-Y. Each team is required to purchase their own balls. Balls will be available for purchase at the fields both Friday and Saturday or you can purchase your own.
Seeding this year will be done as follows: Teams that competed in last year’s
tournament will be seeded in the order they finished in the previous year’s
tournament. After that is established, the team that is traveling the furthest will
receive the higher seed, If a Church is submitting more than one team, please
indicate which team you wish to have as the higher seed. In the event we have a tie,
the higher seed will be given to the team that submitted registration and payment
first. The following years seeding will be done based on how well a team did the
previous year, then distanced traveled will be implemented for new teams. If you go
0-3 this year and we have 10 new teams next year, you will be seeded higher than
the 10 new teams.
Home Run Rule: 0-3 homeruns per game will be called at the plate. Coaches of
both teams will tell Umpire how many homeruns they want. If team A says 3 and
team B says 0, then 1 home run will be allowed for that game. All homeruns after
that will be an out. If Team A says 3 and team B says 2, then 2 home runs will be the
allowed for that game. The only instance where you will meet in the middle is if
Team A says 3 and Team B says 1, then 2 home runs will be the allowed number of
home runs for that game.
