CMWS parade

The 2019 parade begins at 10 a.m. Thursday along Main Street in downtown Farmington.

The parade will travel east, starting at the intersection of Main St. and Auburn Avenue. It will end at Ricketts Park at 1101 N. Fairgrounds Road.

Coach's Fungo

In the Coach's Fungo event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Ricketts Park, each coach will hit the ball to a stationary target to four positions in the infield, plus one stationary target in center field.

They can also attempt to hit the ball over the wall. Coaches will also hit a catcher popup that must be deemed catch-able by a judge.

Each coach will hit two balls to each infield target and one ball to all other targets.

The coach with the most points at the end will be the winner.

Home run derby

A player from each of the 12 teams will compete in the home run derby, which starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Each participant has two minutes to hit as many home runs as possible. They'll receive one point per home run, two points for each home run that hits the scoreboard.

If something out of a player's control happens, such as a broken bat, the clock stops and then starts up again once that issue is resolved.

The top four remaining players will compete in the final round, again hitting as many home runs as possible in two minutes.

Whoever hits the most home runs wins. In the event of a tie in the final round, an additional 90 seconds will be added to decide the winner.

Opening ceremonies will commence at 7:30 p.m., as the 2019 CMWS Hall of Fame class will be inducted. For extended coverage on opening ceremonies, visit daily-times.com.

The time limit for each pool play game is 2 1/2 hours, regardless of the outcome. Pool play will decide where teams will be seeded in the championship bracket.

Head-to-head competition will be the first way to decide a tiebreaker. Total team runs allowed and total team runs scored are the next two ways in deciding a tiebreaker. A game draw or coin flip will be the fourth way to decide a tiebreaker.

After seedings are decided, championship bracket play starts Sunday at Ricketts Park and will last through Saturday, Aug. 3.
