Conditions:

Best of 5 format (first to win 3 games)

If the 2nd Half Winner also happens to be the 1st Half Winner, then the opponent will be the team with the second best winning percentage over the two halves.  In addition, the team with the second best winning percentage will have only 1 home game and the 1st/2nd Half Winner will have a 1-0 advantage to start the Championships.

There is no hard limit on extra innings games. However, depending on the length of the game, there is a chance that game could be called a tie.

In the event that there is a tie after 5 games (2-2-1, 1-1-3), a tie-breaker will be held on one of the make-up dates.

If there are no make-up dates available, then the point system will be used to determine the winner.

The point system is as follows:

- Runs per innings
- Winning percentage over the current year
- Winning percentage vs. one another over the current year
