    Tournament Seeding Information
    The eight teams that make up the 2011 Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament are determined by the best winning percentage in conference competition. 

    The divisional champion with the highest conference winning percentage is the first seed and the remaining divisional champion is the second seed.  All other teams are seeded 3-8 by conference winning percentage.

    Ties will be broken in the following manner:
    1. Two-Team Tie: When two teams are tied for a finish, the following procedure will be used (in the following order until the tie is broken):
         A. Won-lost results of head-to-head competition between the two tied teams.
         B. If they are divisional opponents:
               1. Won-lost percentage within their division (over the 15-game SEC division schedule).
               2. Won-lost percentage of the two teams versus the No. 1 team in their division (and proceeding through the No. 6 team, if necessary).
         C. If two teams are not divisional opponents:
               1. Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed using common opponents only (and proceeding through the No. 8 seed, if necessary).
               2. Coin flip by the Commissioner.

    2. Three-Team Tie (or more): When three or more teams are tied for a finish, the following procedure will be used (in descending order until the tie is broken): Once the tie has been reduced to two teams, the two-team tiebreaker procedure as stated in No. 1 above will be used.
         A. If all three teams are common opponents: Total won-lost percentage of games played among the tied teams.
         B. Won-lost percentage of the tied teams versus the No. 1 seed and proceeding through the No. 8 seed, if necessary, using common opponents only.
         C. If three or more teams still are tied, the Commissioner will conduct a draw.
