2017 NCBBA Post-Season Format
The current format of the NCBBA Post-Season was decided upon by the member teams of the NCBBA via the 2016 NCBBA Annual League Meeting.
The 6 Regions which have been split into directional conferences (New England, North Atlantic, Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, Great Lakes, and Mid America) will have a best of 3 Regional Championship round featuring the regular season winners of their directional conferences as per NCBBA Rule 2.01.2.
The 6 Regional Championships will take place during week 21 of the NCBBA Season and will be hosted by the directional conference winner that is ranked higher in the Rawlings NCBBA Top 15 Poll at that time. The winners of the Regional Championships will automatically earn a spot in the 2017 NCBBA National Championship Tournament.
