With round one of the 2013 WMBL playoffs now complete, round two will determine the Conference Champions. The second round begins on Tuesday, August 6, at 7:05p.m.
The format remains a best of five series for each Conference with the higher ranking (regular season) team hosting the first and second games. The third game, and if required the fourth game, will be played in the lower ranking team's home field. If needed then the fifth game will return to the home field of the higher ranking team determining the Conference winners. From there the two conference winners will play for the WMBL 2013 Championship in the third and final round.
In the Western Conference, first place Medicine Hat Mavericks will host the Okotoks Dawgs with the first two games played at Jefferies Field. During the regular season these two teams split the season series, each winning 4 games.
The Eastern Conference, will see the series open in Swift Current at Mitchell Filed with the Indians taking the field against the Melville Millionaires. Going into the Eastern Conference Final, the Indians hold a 3-1 record against the Millionaires this season.
With no upsets in the first round, both of these Conference finals are match ups with the first and second place regular season teams.
