Major Lynx Do Us Proud

NDG Parent Reporter

The kids left the field tonight hoping that they would be coming back for more...so it was tough to lose that opportunity based only on runs (the website describes the process). Typically, a tournament would not have been decided this way; I was told that there would normally be extra games played to properly determine ranking...but the two days lost to bad weather prevented that from happening.

At the end of the day though, they rallied and won their last game...and there were a lot of happy faces on that field. A great way to end a season of ball.

NDG (2-3) Finished 6th

Based on Run Differential Calculations

The Major NDG Lynx finished the Canadian Nationals with a 2-3 record tied with five other teams after the Host lost to BC 12-0. When more than two teams are tied for first through fourth place, run differential rules are used to determine team placement.

Run differential is calculated by counting for each team the total runs allowed and then dividing that number by the total number of innings played on defence. The calculation takes into account only games involving the tied teams. Under this formula NDG finishes the tournament in sixth place.

The game involving BC vs the Host team will have no affect on the calculation as BC is not tied with any other teams. Therefore the twelve runs scored against the Host team by BC will not be part of the calculation.
