PROSPECT LEAGUE PLAYOFF INFORMATION

 


FORMAT:
 The Prospect League plays a split season, with first and second-half winners. The first-half winner in each division hosts the second-half winner in a one-game division championship game. If a team wins both halves, the team from the same division with the next-best second-half record qualifies for the playoffs.

Division champions move on to the Conference Championship round, where the two divisional winners from the Eastern Conference (Ohio River Valley and Wabash River Divisions) play each other in a winner-take-all game and the same for the two divisional winners from the Western Conference (Great River and Prairie Land Division). The team with the best overall record hosts the Conference Championship Game. 

Conference Champions advance to the best-of-three Prospect League Championship Series. The team with the best overall record has the choice of hosting game one or games two and three. 

 

END OF FIRST HALF: The first half of the 2023 Prospect League season ends when the last game is completed on July 2. Official standings are determined by winning percentage, since many teams will have played a different number of games.
