How Teams and Homefield are Determind.

I. FIRST ROUND: Eight teams
• Top team in each division hosts the fourth place team within their division in a 2 out of 3 series. Game 1 and Game 3, if necessary are home games for the first place team. • The second place team in each division hosts the third place team within their division in a 2 out of 3 series. Game 1 and Game 3, if necessary are home games for the second place team. • There are no play-in games. In the event of ties, a tiebreaker system will be utilized to determine not only home field advantage, but also who is in the playoffs if there is a tie to determine the participants.  record vs. each other – if same, then record vs. divisional opponents – if same, then  record vs. other teams in either division with higher point total – if same, then  team with higher number of wins during regular season- if same, team with better run differential total - flip a coin
II. SECOND ROUND: Four teams
• First round winners in each division play each other in a 2 out of 3 series.  The home team will be determined by the higher point total in the regular season. If those numbers are the same, the same tiebreaker process is used. Games 1 and 3, if necessary, will be home games for the team determined to be the higher seed. 
• To begin the day immediately following the finish of the longest second round playoff series • Between winners of each division playoffs in a 2 out of 3 series. • Hosting duties alternate each game • Top point-getter gains home field advantage (odd-numbered games) • Tie in points for championship home field advantage reverts to the team from the division that won the All-Star game. If the All-Star game was cancelled or ended
