IMPORTANT! - As the brackets progress, game times and locations are subject to change, and some most likely will change. This is necessary due to several circumstances, of which one is this being an interleague playoff tournament (at each game, at least one team needs to be from that city), and another has to due with some managers coaching multiple teams (obviously they can't play at the same time).
