"We conduct a tournament draw meeting. The only given is that the host league gets a bye if the bracket allows for one.
The draws are random. We use a rotation to see who draws first. If Rocklin has the first draw they reach in a bag and draw a number. That number corresponds to the game number in the bracket. Then another league draws next.
Once a bracket is filled then another league gets first draw in the next level of play.
One other caveat. If your league does not have a representative at the meeting that leagues goes on the first game of that bracket until they show up"
In conclusion, no one from Bear River Little League attended the tournament draw meeting prior to the last Bear River team being placed into the brackets. Therefore, all post regular season teams had or have to play more games than any other team to make it to the final game.
