Time to start the baseball post-season.

A-league teams will converge in Cody and in Rock Springs, to determine which teams will move on to the state tournament in Laramie.

It's not quite a double-elimination format.

If a team loses once, they are still alive, but they can't play for the one of the top 2 seeds.

The best they do is 3rd or 4th.

Win the first 2 games, and a team is guaranteed one of the top 2 seeds.

Lose the first 2 games, and a team is done for the year.

All games are 9-inning contests.

North at Cody:

With only 7 teams, one team gets a first round bye. Normally, the top seed out of the Northeast would play the 4th place team in the Northwest, but since the Northwest does not have a 4th team, Douglas gets the first round bye.
