Format[edit]

The 2010 tournament will once again feature a "flipped bracket". This means that after two days of play the undefeated team from each bracket will move into the other bracket. This reduces the amount of rematches teams will have to play in order to win the tournament. Additionally, the tournament will be debuting a "pitch clock," limiting the amount of time that pitchers have to throw the ball to 20 seconds. This rule will not be in effect when runners are on base.
