Tiebreakers

In the event of a tie for the All-Around Champion, the youngster winning more individual events (Pitching, Hitting or Running), among those involved with the tie, will be named the All-Around Champion. If a tie still exists, the youngster with the higher Hitting score, among those involved with the tie, will be named the All-Around Champion. If a tie still exists, the Running scores of those involved with the tie will be used to determine the All-Around Champion. In the event of a tie for an individual skill champion (Pitching Champion, Hitting Champion or Running Champion), there is no tiebreaker. At the Local level, all competitors tying for 1st in each skill event should advance to the Sectional competition and administrators should contact PHR Headquarters for additional certificates if necessary. However, if a competitor ties for first in an individual skill with the minimum score (50 points), he/she should not be awarded or earn advancement based on that skill.
