[MMDL] The Playoffs! Fall 2012's Road to the State Title

The MMDL's "Second Season" is about to begin!  Who will pump fists for big outs and who will cry over missed doubles? Which big name team will fall to an underdog?  Reputations are forged in weeks 1-14 but are earned in the postseason.

Good luck to all teams in their quest for the coveted State Championship of the World's Largest Steel Tip League

Please download your area playoff schedule and read the important reminders below. Most importantly, please check with your home sponsor about any holiday season parties that may conflict with playoff matches, particularly any Thursdays that you are scheduled to play so that you can make alternative arrangements. Proactive communication goes a long way.

* PLAYOFF SCHEDULES * - Click below to download your area's playoff schedule.  Please note that schedules are subject to change and are updated frequently during the post season.  Always check the date code printed on the schedule to ensure you have the most recent version.

Due to Christmas Day and New Year's Day both falling on a Tuesday, some divisions will have one round of the playoffs held on consecutive Thursday evenings. See your playoff schedule below for details.

  1. PLAYOFF ELIGIBILITY: Please remember that all players must have played in a minimum of 3 regular season matches in order to qualify for the playoffs.  Players who have been deemed ineligible by the league will have their names appear in italics on the MMDL Stats Website.  If you have any questions about this policy, please contact your Area Director or the League Commissioner.

  2. Please remember to remind your sponsor about the possibility for Thursday night playoff matches and check their schedule for conflicts with parties or other events.

  3. Winning captains - DON'T FORGET - report playoff match results immediately following your win, call or email your area director as instructed on the playoff schedule sheet.

  4. Driving Directions to Opponent's Sponsor are available from the MMDL Stats Website. Note: May not contain every sponsor, if you don't find yours, try mapquest.com or Google Maps.

  5. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS regarding the playoffs, please contact your Area Director.  ADs are extremely busy during the playoffs and have many other captains to consider, so please be patient and make sure you have all of your information and questions at hand when contacting them. AD contact info is listed on your area playoff schedule or click here.

  6. Playoff Results will be reported after each round is completed on the MMDL website - the downloadable schedule will be updated with advancing teams.  Make sure you check the schedule date code to ensure you have the most up to date version.

  7. TIP: For a match report, since these are not mailed into the league, you may use an extra blank regular season match report (separate the three carbons so you have three copies to use), or just a blank piece of paper.  To download a blank match report that you can print out, click here.
