Instructions For Reporting Scores & Points System

All scores will be reported via email to CVCLeague@hotmail.com by the winning team. The teams will have 3 days after the scores are posted to contest any mistakes in the scoring. If you cannot send email you can also send text message to 724-561-2772 with the score.

Include in the email/text message the organizations, managers names, score for each team, age group, date scheduled online, and field.

For Example - Findlay Smith - 7 North Fayette Jones - 5, 10U Fast Pitch, 5/1/11 @ Little Clinton

 

Effective 2013, the CVC will use a point system for standings rather than win-loss record.  The point system is as follows:

  • 3 points for a win or forfeit win
  • 2 points for a tie
  • 1 point for a loss
  • -1 points for a forfeit loss

The tiebreaker if the points are equal at the end of the season is as follows:

  • Head-to-head record
  • Runs against per game (excluding forfeit games and non-played games from calculation)
  • Coin Flip
