Please review the tournament rules document
We play by the MBL rules.

Any pool game resulting in a tie at the end of regulation or time limit will REMAIN a tie.
There will be NO EXTRA INNINGS in pool play. Teams will receive 2 points = win, 1 point = tie and 0 points = loss.
Ages 10-12, no new innings start after 1 hour 45 minutes. Hard stop reverts back to last completed inning at 2 hours.
Ages 13-15, no new innings start after 2 hours. Hard stop reverts back to last completed inning at 2 hours 15 minutes.
Ages 10- to 12-under: 6 innings / Game cannot end in a tie.
Ages 13- to 15-under: 7 innings / Game cannot end in a tie.
Pitch Count Restrictions: (MBL/MBT rules)
10U : 75 pitches per day/ 115 pitches per tournament
11U-12U : 85 pitches per day / 125 pitches per tournament
13U-15U : 95 pitches per day / 135 pitches per tournament
For Sunday bracket play:
Teams will be seeded based on tournament tiebreaker rules (MBT).
Please note - in regard to teams tied after pool play...
Due to limitations within Tourney Machine (getting the TIE BREAKER rules to match the MBT Tie Breaker rules isn't possible). The teams that advance to Sunday may NOT display correctly.
In these instances, we will apply the MBT Tie Breaker Rules and manually advance the correct teams.
We hope this avoids any confusion. Thanks for understanding!
