The 2019 Minnesota Softball Fall State Co-Ed Slow Pitch Championships see a field of eight teams vying for the title Saturday, Oct. 5 at Sand Creek Park in Coon Rapids.
The eight teams are divided into two pools of four, where each team will play two games to determine which bracket they advance to.
Pool A sees Dutch/Luckys facing Upper Midwest/XL, while the other matchup is Mighty Ducks vs. Bad Pitches. Pool B features Tree Frogs vs. MNDuhhh, and 3&Out vs. Running Aces.
The first-game winners then face off to determine first and second place in the pool, while the first-game losers play to determine third and fourth place.
The Gold Bracket will feature Pool A’s first-place team against Pool B’s second-place team, as well as Pool B’s first-place team against Pool A’s second-place team. The winners of those games play for the Gold championship at 5:30 p.m.
The Silver Bracket sees Pool A’s third-place team play Pool B’s fourth-place team, and Pool B’s third-place team facing Pool A’s fourth-place team, with the winners of those two games playing for the Silver title at 5:30 p.m.
