Junior Legion Tournament

Tournament Format

The top 4 teams from the east and the top 4 teams from the west will qualify for the post-season tournament held at Manteo High School. The tournament will have two, four team double elimination brackets. The higher seeded team will be the home team. In the bracket finals there will be a bracket swap of team to prevent playing the same team multiple times. The winners of each bracket will play a single elimination championship game.

-Game times/dates are subject to change due to weather.
– Players need to bring shoes in the dugout. In the event of inclement weather requiring a tarp pull, players from both teams will be used to put the tarp out and to take off the field.
– Games will start as close to the scheduled start time as possible.  Games will not start early if we are ahead of schedule.
– The higher seed will be the home team throughout the entire tournament (Example:  If 2 seed plays 7 seed the 2 seed is home team). In the event of two identical seeds (3E vs 3W) we will break the tie by head to head record.
– The designated home dugout will be the first base line.
– We will do the anthem, the creed and code of sportsmanship will be read before each game.
– The lower seed will have batting cage for BP 1 hour and 40 minutes prior to game time.  The higher seed will have BP in cage 1 hour and 20 minutes prior to game time.  Each team gets 20 minutes.
– The lower seeded team will take Infield first 45 minutes prior to game time.  The higher seeded team will take infield second 35 minutes prior to game time.  Each team gets 10 minutes.
–  The field will be prepped before each team takes infield. PRE-GAME SCHEDULE WILL BE ENFORCED, so stay on schedule and within the time frame allowed. If stretching/throwing needs to be done prior to getting on field you can use area behind left field and football field. NO METAL CLEATS ARE WORK ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.
– We ask that teams are ready to take infield at their designated time, and if we are running behind schedule we will do our best to get started as soon as possible. 

Below are PRELIMINARY times for tournament games. All games will be played at Manteo High School. Game times for Tuesday will be finalized after the last conference games (Sunday July 3rd).
