About

The 2007 Baseball Ireland A League was the 11th season of the Irish Baseball League, and the second of the A League following the split into two levels in 2006. It featured the same six teams as in 2006, with each team playing each other team three times for a balanced 15-game schedule, after which the top four teams qualified for the Playoffs, with the Top two playing in one semi-final (1v2) to determine who progressed to the Final, and teams ranked three and four playing an elimination semi-final (3v4) to see who would go forward to meet the losers of the first semi-final in the third semi-final (SF1 Losers v SF2 Winners). The winners of the first semi-final (1v2) and third semi-final (SF1 Losers v SF2 Winners) met in the best-of-three Final.
