The 8-ball team and the 9-ball team with the most points earned in the entire League area will receive the BIG DAWG AWARD. The Big Dawg award is based on a team's total points earned during the session compared to all other teams that participate in the same format. So the team winning Big Dawg is not only the top team in their division, but the top team for the session in that format. In the event that two or more teams are tied for Big Dawg both/all teams tied will receive the award.
Each team earning the BIG DAWG AWARD will receive a plaque for each member on the team. In addition to the plaque, the team will be gain an automatic bid to the City Tournament, without needing to participate in the session playoffs.
There is one Big Dawg winner in 8-Ball & one Big Dawg winner in 9-Ball, each session. All Big Dawg winners will be announced online each session.
