If you can read the above bylaws, it outlines how you break a tie in baseball and softball in the Citrus Belt League. In softball,. there will be either a two- or three-way tie for the fourth and final CIF-SS playoff spot, but either way, Redlands wins the tiebreaker.
Only one game remains, and that’s going on now, Citrus Valley vs. REV. As it is right now, Redlands and Cajon each have 7-7 league records tied for fourth, with Citrus Valley at 6-7. A Citrus Valley win over second place REV would make it a 3-way tie for fourth.
Since each of the 3 teams went 1-1 against each other, the next tie breaker is runs allowed vs. the other two teams. Here’s how it breaks down:
Redlands vs. Cajon 6 runs allowed, Redlands vs. Citrus Valley 5 runs allowed. Total: 11 runs allowed
Citrus Valley vs. Redlands 8 runs allowed, Citrus Valley vs. Cajon, 11 runs allowed. Total: 19 runs allowed
Cajon vs. Citrus Valley: 13 runs allowed, Cajon vs. Redlands 11 runs allowed. Total: 24 runs allowed.
So, whether it is a two-way tie or a 3-way tie, Redlands gets the last automatic berth.
