A quick look at the first-ever MIAA Super 8 baseball tournament:
■ What’s the format? Double elimination. After the second round, two teams will be eliminated.
■ How many innings? All Super 8 games will be nine innings.
■ What if it rains? If weather is an issue, a decision on whether to play will be made three hours before the start. In the first three rounds, if a game is stopped after 4½ innings, it’s considered complete. Beginning in Round 4, games will be resumed from the point of stoppage.
■ Where will games be played? In the first round, the higher seed will be the home team. In Rounds 2-6, games will be at a neutral site.
■ Why not a complete schedule? With proms, graduations, and the weather, it’s a season of conflicts and changes. Fans should check MIAA.net for updates.
■ Tickets: $10 for adults, $7 for students.
