If two clubs from the same division are tied but both are assured of participating in the postseason, then the first tie-breaker to determine which club is the Division Champion and which club is the Wild Card would be their 2006 season-series record.

As a point of clarification, if three clubs finish the season with the same winning percentage and one team will be a division winner and another will be the Wild Card, the games will be played as follows:

• The two teams tied for the division lead will play the one-game tie-breaker, with the winner being declared the division champion.

• The losing team will then play the club from the other division for the Wild Card.

A tie-breaker game would be played on Monday, October 2nd and TBS and ESPN Radio would provide national coverage. In the event of simultaneous or overlapping tie-breaker games, TNT would provide national coverage.

Additional coin tosses will be held if they become necessary over the rest of the 2006 season.
