The City Section, with the support of its coaches, will create Open Division playoffs this season for baseball, softball and boys volleyball.
In baseball, the Open Division will consist of the top 12 teams, mostly from the 28-team Division I. Four teams will have a first-round bye. It means all 28 teams competing in Division I will make the playoffs, with a 16-team Division I format.
Still to be decided is whether the Division I or Division II championship game will join the Open Division in playing at Dodger Stadium.
