AASL 2007 Playoffs
At the end of the regular season, AASL has single-elimination playoffs
to determine a league champion.
Bracket Game Summaries Round 1 Round 2 - Semifinals Round 3 - Championship Teams Umpires Rainouts
Round 1Congratulations to Squeeze Play for winning first round Playoffs game vs. Colonial Spirits in a very close game ending 5-3.
Round 2 - SemifinalsCongratulations to Rink Rats for edging a win over Squeeze Play in a very close game at NARA ending 13-12 with a disputed call at 2nd base that would have tied the game in the top of the 7th (who knows what would've followed!?).
Round 3 - ChampionshipCongratulations to Rink Rats who won the playoffs championship by defeating Rockets 9-7. Rockets took an early lead and the game went back and forth through the first six innings, with Rink Rats adding 4 runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead for good!
TeamsIn 2007, AASL loses field space in early August to the Elm Street Lighting project. Because of limited permits available to AASL, we are only able to accommodate an 8-team playoff rather than our historical full-league playoff. Playoff seeds are determined by winning percentage in the regular season, shown in the standings.
UmpiresIn the playoffs, AASL uses ASA certified, paid umpires at home plate for each game. They use ASA rules, modified with AASL rules. Specifically, with ASA certified umpires, the infield fly rule is in effect. See AASL rules for reasoning and clarification. The umpires make all the calls behind the plate as well as in the field. Your base coaches need not act as umpires in the playoff games, though you still need coaches to help your runners. Umpires are provided by the Greater Lowell Softball Umpires Association (GLSUA) who have done a fabulous job for us since our 2001 playoffs!
RainoutsRain? Never...especially not this season...If a game is rained out, we will try to post information online and alert captains as we have done during the regular season. Games will be made up in the first available slot. Commissioners will schedule these as necessary with regard to progressing the playoff bracket. In most cases, we hope this is in a slot that doesn't yet have teams scheduled, however, we may need to bump a second-round game to accommodate a rained out first-round game. If anything happens, we will alert captains, post on the site, etc. Games will remain on Mondays through Thursdays (no playoff games on Fridays or Sundays).
