Heavyweights Return for NYBC Race for the Crown Week 2
Ten teams return to VTV Sports Complex in Castaic, California this weekend April 5-6 for Week 2 of the NYBC Race for the Crown. Two automatic bids to the National Youth Baseball Championships will ultimately be on the line during Week 3 on Memorial Day weekend.
The 10 teams will be in one pool for two pool play games to begin play. The first pool play game will be seeded for all teams. The No. 1 seed will play No. 10, No. 2 vs No. 9, etc. The second pool play game for each team was randomly generated by TourneyMachine.com. Every team advances to bracket play that starts on Saturday night.
SGV Hustle claimed the Week 1 championship with an 11-0 win over BPA DeMarini. Those two teams are ranked No. 1 and 2, respectively, for this weekend. Lamorinda Immortals are No. 3, and San Diego Show has the No. 4 seed.
The eight teams with the highest point totals from Weeks 1 and 2 will move on to Championship Weekend to be held on May 24-26. The format for the final week is a double elimination tournament with the teams seeded 1-8. Both the champion and runner-up teams will receive an automatic bid to the NYBC on Aug. 7-11 at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank, New York.
