What is Leftfield Lounge

This is John Grisham‘s perspective of Dudy Noble Field, Polk-Dement Stadium and what it means to a Dawg Fan.  It can’t be articulated any better than this.  It is reprinted with his permission.


It is tempting, in this short space, to talk about people. I could write pages about the young men who’ve played at Dudy Noble. I could go on and on about those electric moments, such as Burke’s grand slam, back to back home runs by Clark and Palmeiro, Raffo’s monstrous shots, Showalter’s .459, B. J.’s 19 strikeouts, Thigpen’s throws to the plate, Pete’s dirty uniform, the easy grace of Jody Hurst chasing fly balls, and on and on. Read more

Going in to the last four weeks of the regular season, I imagine there will be a lot of scoreboard watching and folks trying to figure out SEC Tournament teams and seedings. Here is the official SEC Baseball tournament seeding information.  Refer to it and share it as needed.

Seeding

The two division champions shall be automatically seeded number one and number two based on winning percentage in conference competition. The rest shall be seeded numbers three through 12 based on winning percentage without regard to division. Ties will be broken in the following manner:

Two-Team Tie. The following procedure will be used in the following order
until the tie is broken:

A. Won-lost results of head-to-head competition between the two tied teams.

B. If two-teams are divisional opponents:

(1) Won-lost percentage within their division (over the 18-game SEC
division schedule).
(2) Won-lost percentage of the two teams versus the No. 1 team in their
division (and proceeding through the No. 7 team, if necessary).

C. If two teams are not divisional opponents:

(1) Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed using
common opponents only (and proceeding through the No. 12 seed,
if necessary).
(2) Coin flip by the Commissioner

Three-Team Tie (or more). The following procedure will be used in the
following order until the tie is broken: (Note: If the three tied teams have three
different records against each other, they shall be seeded in best-percentage
order.) Otherwise, once the tie has been reduced to two teams, the two-team
tiebreaker procedure will be used.

A. If all three teams are common opponents: Total won-lost percentage of
games played among the tied teams.

B. Won-lost percentage of the tied teams versus the No. 1 seed and
proceeding through the No. 12 seed, if necessary, using common opponents
only.

C. If three or more teams still are tied, the Commissioner will conduct a
draw.
