Three-Way tie in 10-11 Tournament

In the 10-11 Year-Old Baseball Tournament, Pool B ended in a 3-way tie for first, with Upper Loudoun National, Dulles National, and Central Loudoun National all ending with a 2-1 record. Since only two team advance, Little League tie breakers were applied to determine the top two of the three teams.

Head-to-head is the first tie breaker, but each of the teams beat one of the tied teams and lost to the other. Therefore, we used the second tie breaker, Runs Allowed Ratio (runs allowed divided by defensive innings played).

Runs Allowed Ratios

  • ULLLN had 17/15 = 1.133 RAR
  • CLLLN had 21/18 = 1.167 RAR
  • DLLN had 18/14 = 1.286 RAR

By virtue of the lowest Runs Allowed Ratio, ULLLN wins the second tie breaker and the pool.

To break the remaining tie, DLLN vs. CLLLN, head-to-head is used. Since DLLN beat CLLLN, DLLN takes the second place in the pool.

In Pool A, Central Loudoun American and Upper Loudoun American had already advanced.
