Team League Rankings for 2015 Group Play - (As of Aug 14th)
This chart shows the league standings used to rank teams before their group play to determine their seeding. Seedings will remain after Group Play to rank teams in the Dazzling Dozen© round...vying to enter the Elite Eight double-elimination round...but all undefeated teams in the group play will be seeded above those that lost a game.


This list of teams shows the league standings as of August 14th originally used to rank teams. However, they have now been further ranked AFTER their group play. The undefeated teams in group play are ranked above those that lost a game.

The top four ranked teams in the Dazzling Dozen© will automatically be in the double-elimination round of the Elite Eight. The remaining eight teams must win a play-in game to enter the double-elimination Elite Eight roundfor the championship.

The top four seeds will be separated in each of the four sections of the "Elite Eight" and paired as closely as possible to traditional pairings - highest ranked vs lowest, number two vs second lowest, and teams ranked in the middle vs others with mid-ranged rankings.

Again this year, if it rains, the commissioner may deem that the entire remaining tournament games will all (or at a point of excessive rain the remaining games yet to be played) be conducted in single-elimination format or that only the final four teams play in double-elimination brackets because of persistent rain.

Commissioner's mascots of past tournaments on Andrews Air Force Base fields prior to the 9/11 attacks:

Just beyond the hanger for Air Force One on Andrews Air Force Base, 
Potamus guards a softball he stole from a player's bag 
while Miss Beavis looks to find a comfortable spot on which to rest.

Prior to the 2000 championship round of the final four teams, 
Potamus poses with the trophies at Andrews Air Force Base.

Between games, Potamus uses warm-up time to rule on the Andrews AFB field 
as well as scout the player talent of each year's participants.

Potamus patiently waits behind the backstop until the teams form a line to
congratulate each other at game's end. That's his signal for someone to throw a
ball into the outfield while he runs looking up behind him.
