Note: If nobody declines to host, 1 vs. 8 and 2 vs. 7 games will be played at 1:00pm and 3 vs. 6 and 4 vs. 5 games will play at 4:00pm
Rationale: It is most convenient for host team (with field prep) to play first game.
Example: If the #1 seed declines host, and the #5 seed accepts to host, then the 4 vs. 5 game will be the 1:00pm game and the 1 vs. 8 game becomes the 4:00pm game.
Sunday, August 5th

**Fields with lights - 6:00pm
**If needed to accommodate for a shortage of umpires, a loser’s bracket game at field with lights may need to be played at 2:00pm

*It is especially important to stick to this schedule for 4:00pm games on Saturday, August 4th doubleheader as both teams will be travelling and must know when cage is available for them while the first game is being played.
