West Coast Finals: Rules & Basic Information
By: Brian Werner | brian@prospectwire.com

Mesa, AZ - West Coast Finals Coaches:

Our West Coast Finals gets underway on June 22nd, with games starting at 9:30 am.  We are utilizing 2 fields for the games:  Gene Autry Complex & Fitch (Cubs) Park.  We will be using Red Mountain Park for the combines, as well as some of the playoffs games (as well as Hohokam Stadium).  The addresses are as follows:

1.)  FITCH COMPLEX:  651 N. Center  Mesa, Arizona 85211
2.)  GENE AUTRY COMPLEX:  4125 East McKellips Road  Mesa, AZ 85215
3.)  RED MOUNTAIN COMPLEX;  8008 East Brown Road  Mesa, AZ 85207

The abbreviations I used on the schedule are:  FITCH, GAC (Gene Autry Complex), RM (Red Mountain)

During the event, if you have questions, concerns, etc., regarding the tournament please contact the following:

  • Brian Werner: National Tournament Director - brian@prospectwire.com
  • Matt Schaffer: Asst. Tournament Director - matt_624@hotmail.com or (727) 479.5661 (please note, Matt Schaffer will be working this event from home in Florida, so he will be 3 hours behind us in Arizona.  Please try to use email, especially after 6:30 pm (Arizona Time)
  • The tournament will have certified athletic trainers on site at all complexes.  We encourage your players to take advantage of Ice after they pitch and any other services they may need from the trainer. 
  • Prospect Wire is proud to have 2 hour & 15 min time limits on all games.  Between the wood bats in the 18U/16U divisions, the BBCOR bats in the 14U division, and this extended time limit, we feel that the majority of the games should complete the full 7 innings. 
  • A few rules to note:  THE GOLDEN RULE - When in doubt, and when it's not addressed, all rules are National High School Rules, with the following exceptions:
  1. Two Hour & 15 Min Time limit on all games
  2. Teams will perform a coin flip to determine home team before each POOL PLAY & CONSOLATION GAME.  Once the playoffs start, the higher seed will always be HOME TEAM. The only exception will be the CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, where Home Team is decided by Coin Flip again.
  3. All teams are allowed to hit 10 batters.  This can be a DH & EH.  TEAMS CANNOT HIT 11 OR MORE BATTERS.  The EH can move in & out of the lineup, like any other position. 
  4. Run Rule:  10 runs after 5 innings
  5. If a coach or player is ejected from a game, that participant must sit out that game + one additional game:  NO EXCEPTIONS!  If an umpire or Tournament Director asks you to leave the premises, you must do so or your team may forfeit it's remaining games.

TIE BREAKERS:

FIRST TIE BREAKER:  HEAD TO HEAD

SECOND TIE BREAKER:  RUNS ALLOWED DURING POOL PLAY

THIRD TIE BREAKER:  RUNS SCORED DURING POOL PLAY

*NOTE - There is one POOL in the 16U Division that has 3 teams - those teams will play 4 games during POOL PLAY.  For purposes of Tie Breakers for this division ONLY - the final game played we will drop the SCORE of these games, so Runs Scored & Runs Allowed are counted over 3 games, like all other divisions.  This applies to POOL P ONLY.  The results will count for the 4th game, just not the score with regards to TIE BREAKERS. 

18U DIVISION:  We will take 16 Teams for the playoffs.  This means TWO teams from each pool will advance to the Playoff Round.  The other teams will play their consolation games.

16U DIVISION:  We will take 16 Teams for the playoffs.  This means TWO teams from each pool will advance to the Playoff Round + 2 WILD CARD Teams (to be selected from the next two best teams, regardless of what pool they are from).  The other teams will play their consolation games. 

  • Prospect Wire is not providing Scorekeepers for any games being played!  Instead, Prospect Wire has hired additional scouts to get relevant, REAL TIME, Scouting information on stand-out participating players during the games. 
  • The umpire & home team, are responsible for reporting an accurate final score to the appropriate Tournament Staff Member, so they can record the results of the game for the website.  
  • All baseballs are provided by Prospect Wire

I am waiting on information from the Parks & Recreation Dept on Coolers in the dugouts, whether or not the parks will be providing water & ice, and whether or not parents can bring coolers into the parks.  As soon as I have that information I will pass it along.  I will be producing the COMBINE schedule tomorrow, and will forward that to all coaches once it's complete.  The schedule has been sent to all coaches by PDF Spreadsheet, as well as being listed on our website.
