CAL CUP III CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT
OCTOBER 28 & 29, 2006
To all Tournament Team Managers:
Attached you will find the tournament game schedule and special rules for the 2006 Cal Cup III tournament to be held in Hayward. We have registered 7 teams for this tournament and will be using 2 fields (the Larry Standley Softball Field and 1 Field at the Alden Oliver Hayward Sports Complex) with games starting at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Driving directions to the fields are also attached.
The tournament format will be slightly different that the normal 3 game guarantee round robin, single elimination format.
The format that we will be using is as follows: each team will play 2 games on Saturday morning to determine their seeding into a 7 team double elimination championship bracket that will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. The 1st place seed will receive the first round bye. Standings after the 1st 2 games on Saturday will be computed on the basis of 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie and 0 for a loss. Tiebreakers will be as follows: win/loss record, least runs allowed, total runs scored, coin flip or card draw if more than 2 teams tied after all other tie breaker procedures have been exhausted.
*Note: Any team having forfeited a game for ANY reason will lose all tie-breakers in standings.
Games 1-4 of the Double Elimination bracket will be played on Saturday, 2 games at 5:00 and 2 games at 6:45 p.m. Games 5â€“13 will be played on Sunday with the championship game scheduled at 5:00 p.m. and the â€œIFâ€ needed game immediately following. See attached schedule for more information.
I would also like for all managers to please e-mail a complete listing of your teamâ€™s player roster and positions ASAP as we will be awarding a Most Valuable Pitcher and a Most Valuable Player award along with the Champions Cal Cup Trophy and 1st and 2nd place individual t-shirts.
If you have any questions or are in need of any more information please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail at SCSAHAYCA@aol.com or by phone at:
(510) 881-8465 office or (510) 703-8352 cell.
Thanks and see you on Saturday!
