Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship Format Changed Irving, TX - In the wake of this weeks' devastating storm in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, the Big 12 Conference is postponing the start of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship.

The championship was set to begin on Wednesday at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in a double-elimination tournament format but is switching to a Thursday start and pool play.

"Our hearts go out to all this tragedy has touched," said Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby. "We have been in constant contact with the event organizers in Oklahoma City and are following a recommendation to play the championship, but not as previously scheduled."

The Conference was encouraged to proceed with the championship by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. "We are very appreciative of the consideration by the participating teams and the Big 12 Conference," Cornett said. "We encouraged and supported the decision to play the championship in a format comfortable to the Big 12."

The format, which has previously been used by the Big 12, will feature two pools. K-State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Baylor will play in one pool with Oklahoma State, West Virginia, TCU and Kansas in the second pool. Each team will be guaranteed three games and the team with the best record in each pool will advance to the championship game on Sunday.

The format will feature games at 9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m., CT on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The championship game will be at 1 p.m., CT on Sunday.
