As originally written by Tony Miller:

A new league forms. Ten teams, two divisions of five, four of which made the playoffs.

Home team listed first.

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on April 6: "Ty Keough will serve as analyst for most of the games. But when Keough does play-by-play, Bill McDermott will join him and handle analysis." Based on this, if we have confirmed that Keough was doing play-by-play, I've put McDermott in the color slot. If a game is listed "Ty Keough, partner unknown," it means we don't know which role Keough filled. I'm also not ruling out the possibility of a Schoen/McDermott booth.
