Thorne-Rider stadium in Sheridan is the site for the 2022 Wyoming Legion Baseball AA State Tournament.
The tournament is modified double-elimination format.
The first 2 days proceed like a regular double-elimination tournament.
On Day 3 there are 3 games…2 elimination games, and then the 2 teams that are 2-0 vs. each other.
After Day 3, there will be 1 team in the winners bracket and 3 in the losers bracket.
On Day 4, the 1 team left in the winners bracket will face one of the losers bracket teams (a team that they have not yet faced, if possible), but regardless of what happens, that winners bracket team is still in the championship game.
If the winners bracket team wins on Day 4, then the other team that comes out of the losers bracket, must win twice on Day 5 to win the championship.
If the winners bracket team loses on Day 4, the team is still in the championship game, but the championship game, becomes a 1-game winner-take-all, because of the loss on Day 4.
Long story short…the only time, a team has to play twice in one day, during the tournament, is the last day, and that’s only if they have 1 loss, weather pending.
The modified double-elimination format also saves some pitching for teams, because the maximum number of games a team would have to play in the tournament is 6, whereas under the original double elimination format, the maximum would be 7.
Cheyenne Post 6 is the 2-time defending state champs, and have won 18 of the last 21.
