Hi, Les.
 
I have a couple of questions relating to 7-game schedules, a scenario relevant this fall to Wednesday Evening Coed and Friday Evening Men’s:
 
1.  What is the minumum number of games a player must play in order to be playoff-eligible?  Because of the way the rule is worded, I believe that the answer is 3 – the same as for an 8-game season, but I just wanted to confirm.
“POST SEASON ELIGIBLITY: All players must have played in at least 1/3 of the team’s regular season games (3 or more in an 8-game season) to qualify for the post season.”
 
2.  For these 7-game seasons, will there be an adjustment to the required number of plate appearances for offensive award eligibility?  In an 8-game season, this is 21 APP for core players and 18 APP for eddies.
 
Thanks!
Bill

1. Yes, 3 games would be needed.
2. I hadn't thought of that (good catch, Bill), but it would make sense to reduce the plate appearance requirements. Let's make it 18 and 15.

Thank you!  That all sounds reasonable.
