10-11 Baseball Three-Way Tie

In the 10-11 Year-Old Baseball Tournament, Pool B ended in a 3-way tie for first, with Upper Loudoun American, Dulles American, and Lower Loudoun all ending with a 2-1 record. Since only two teams 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

  • ULLLA had 14/16 = 0.875 RAR
  • DLLA had 19/17 = 1.178 RAR
  • LLLL had 14/17 = 0.824 RAR

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

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

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