National League Battles to TIE
Congrats on a great season...can't believe we are this far already. After the 162 game grind, the NL (both divisions) finished in a tie for 1st. The Pittsburgh Pirates and the NY Mets both finished at 100-62 and likewise, the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves finished at 90-72. According to playoff tiebreaking rules for 1969:
1) 1 game playoff, played as a regular season game, will determine the division winner
2) Coin flip will determine home filed advantage.
3) Game is to be played the NEXT day after the regular season has ended
Under those rules, the following games must be played before I can send out the playoff disk.
Cincinnati at Atlanta (1 game playoff)
NY Mets at Pittsburgh (1 game playoff)
These games must be played head to head (if you can not, please find a sub for your team) and since it is a regular season game, all player fatigue and roster limits will be accounted for as if they were on the last game of the regular season. Please set your lineups and starting pitcher however you wish....but make sure to check pitcher fatigues
