image_name2

2015 MYBA SPRING PLAY-OFF FORMATS: 

Coaches please note and plan accordingly!

TIE BREAKERS: 1st Tie Breaker is Head-to-Head games. 2nd Tie Breaker is run differential in Head-to-Head games (No max per game). 3rd Tie Breaker is runs allowed in Head-to-Head games. 4th Tie Breaker is runs allowed in games vs common opponents. 5th Tie Breaker is Runs scored in games vs common opponents. 6th Tie Breaker flip of coin. Note:  A tie game is ½ win and ½ loss, and will be reflected as such in calculating a teams winning percentage.

SEEDING:  Teams will be seeded based on their record using the above tie breaker system. If teams have not played the same number of games (as of the date of record) we will use winning percentage in order to seed teams.

RAIN-OUTS: We will reschedule games as soon as they are rained out. We reserve the right to establish a cut-off date for the rescheduling of games should it become necessary towards the end of the regular season.

    Miami-Dade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez throwing the first pitch

    Miami-Dade County Commissioner and former City Manager of the City of Miami, CARLOS GIMENEZ, threw out the first pitch this past Saturday, April 30th at the Grapeland Park Sports Complex. Commissioner Gimenez was instrumental as City Manager of the City of Miami in getting the bonds on the ballot, and approved by our residents, in order for us to be able to today enjoy the great recreation and sports complex at Grapeland Park. The complex includes the Water Park, Golf Course Clubhouse, Baseball Complex, and Community Center.

    In addition to being a strong supporter of the Miami Youth Baseball Association, Carlos has always been an advocate of recreation and sports, and the role they play in the development of our future leaders (our youth).

    The MYBA wishes Commissioner Gimenez the best in the upcoming Miami-Dade County Mayoral election on Tuesday, May 24th.
