Baseball

Tiebreaker for Seeding and/or Qualification

In the event of a tie in winning percentage in the regular-season standings, the following procedure shall be applied in the designated order to break all ties for seeding or to determine the final team(s) that will qualify for the conference championship:

1. Head to head competition between all tied teams;

2. Head to head competition against other conference teams. The tied teams will be compared to the first place, second place, third place, etc. until one team holds an advantage over the other tied teams;

3. Winning percentage versus common non-conference opponents;

4. Highest strength of schedule (SOS) in the most recently published NCAA regional rankings;

5. Coin toss. In a three-way tie requiring the use of a coin flip, three coins will be flipped simultaneously, with the "odd toss" winning the tiebreaker and the remaining teams starting over from step one (head-to-head comparison).

Note: Ties will be resolved from the top of the standings down for the purposes of resolving ties further down the standings. Should multiple ties exist at two different positions in the standings and each tie depends on the other to be broken (a circular deadlock), the tied teams higher in the standings shall proceed down the above criteria. In the event that three or more teams are tied, when one or more teams either "wins" or "loses" a specific step in the tiebreaker, the remaining tied teams will be treated as a "new" tie and the procedure will start over from step one.
