2022 Playoff Procedures

Triple-A

International League

The International League's two playoff participants will be decided based on the best regular season winning percentage in each division. In the event of any ties, the following tiebreakers will apply in the order below:

1. Head-to-head record (if three or more clubs, best winning percentage in games among the clubs).

2. If the clubs remain tied, best overall winning percentage over the last 20 games.

3. If the clubs remain tied, best overall winning percentage over an additional game (i.e., the last 21 games, the last 22 games, etc.) until one emerges with a better winning percentage in that span of games.

The two division winners will meet in a one-game playoff to determine the 2022 league champion on Saturday, Oct 1, at 9:05 p.m. ET. That winner will play the Pacific Coast League champion on Sunday, Oct. 2, at 7:05 p.m. ET, to crown the overall Triple-A National Champion.

Double-A, High-A, Single-A

The format for the 2022 Postseason will consist of four teams per league in a best-of-3 division series, followed by a best-of-3 championship series.

The four participants per league will be the winners of each division from both halves based on the best winning percentage of each half. In the event the same club wins both halves, the club with the next best full-season winning percentage in that division will advance.

The two playoff participants will be decided based on the best winning percentage of each half.
