(The Norwood park is available to use for make-up games, etc.) • Each team is granted one forfeit www.CRVLbaseball.com win vs. Norwood, which is applied to the league standings immediately. This leaves the North and West division teams with an 18-game schedule, while the other Central teams have 17 games. Because of that, the tiebreaker process for ties across divisions was modified to use a runs-per-game calculation rather than total runs to allow for a difference in number of games played.
