I know that many don't like the "Two and Bar-B-Que" from a Double Elimination format so:
What format does your District use for its Tournament?

How many Tournament Games do most of the teams get to play?

For example, we have 12 leagues in our District.
Depending on the Division and number of teams entered, we generally split the teams into two Pools (north and south).
The two Pool Winners then play for the District Championship.

We have 19 leagues, but many do not put a team at every level.
In fact, this year might be the first year ever where even the biggest league can't put a team in in each division.
Hurting bad.

In 11/12s we have 12 teams, 6 in each pool, top 3 in each pool advance for 6 team DE.

In 9/10s we also have 12 teams, 6 in each pool, but only the top 2 in each pool advance for 4 team DE.

Our big problem this year is umpires.
We only have about 20 or so umpires left in the District.
In years past we've had 60+.
No one wants to do games for free anymore.
Because of this we've had to cut down the number of games in some of the other divisions.
Lots of people aren't happy.

We have 15 10-12 teams in our District, 15 8-10 teams and 13 9-11 teams.
We run Double-Elimination.
Personally I'd prefer a Pool format to put more games on the schedule.

This is a down year for Softball.

8-10: only 2 teams they will play straight DE
9-11: only 2 teams again DE.

Years past we never had 9-11 so more teams would enter 8-10.

Majors SB: 5 teams. 4 pool play games top 4 advance.

Majors BB: 10 teams 2 pools. Top 4 advance with a crossover.

Not sure on the other BB divisions.
Think the are in the 6-7 team ranges.
1 pool top 4 advance to DE.

We switched last year to DE for the first time, (in at least a long time) in the 11 and 12.

We had only 6 teams in 12, (2 from our league). 4 in Intermediate.

10s will do pool play. 6 teams, each team plays all the others once.

This year the largest league has none in 12. (Well most leagues don't, after recent mergers, we have 15 leagues)

Out of our six possible teams (2 each three levels), we have three teams.

It looks like DE again.

Of course, we have to finish the Spring Season playoffs tonight.
