Game 27 - Brisbane North versus Far North Coast (cancelled, schedule change)
Game 28 - Brisbane Metro versus Brisbane West (cancelled, schedule change)

NOTE: Games scheduled for Saturday, April 13 were cancelled due to rain. Baseball Queensland implemented a contingency plan which prioritized games that directly impact national tournament qualification over other games in the original round robin schedule. Games scheduled against the Commissioner's Team, or involving teams not in direct competition for a national tournament spot, were lower priority. An example of a game involving teams not in direct competition would be Game 22's Brisbane West versus Far North Coast matchup; Brisbane was competing for a Metro berth in the national tournament, and Far North Coast was competing alongside North Queensland for a Country qualification slot.

The game between Brisbane Metro and Brisbane West was not played as it would not impact which teams advance to the metro championship game.

With the schedule change, games from the first two days of the tournament between teams in separate pools did not count in the standings. Officials aimed to complete all games with direct implications on national tournament qualifying on Sunday, April 14, with the Metro championship game postponed until Wednesday, April 17. The revised schedule and results appear below.

Day 4 (Sunday, April 14):
Gold Coast 17, Brisbane Metro 6
Brisbane North 9, Brisbane South 1
Brisbane Metro 15, Brisbane South 10
Brisbane North 18, Commissioner's Team 9
Commissioner's Team 11, Brisbane West 6

Western Australia State Tournament

Tournament Results:

Format: Three-stage tournament, with eight metro leagues and four country leagues competing for berths in the Australian Region tournament. Four Metro leagues and one Country league will qualify for the region tournament.

In the first stage, eight metro leagues play a series of qualifying games that determine seeding position for the tournament's second stage. All leagues advance to stage two, where they are joined by the Combined Stars and Combined Suns teams.

In the second stage, leagues compete in a further round of qualifying games that determine seedings for the Western Australia finals. Leagues will move up or down one spot in the qualifying round seeding positions based on the results of individual games. With this schedule, higher-seeded leagues are placed on one side of the draw and will face one another, and lower-seeded teams are placed on the other side of the draw and also face one another. Teams move up or down the seeding table as the tournament progresses based on their results. At the conclusion of the second phase, the ten leagues are seeded 1 through 10 in preparation for the Western Australia finals.

In the tournament's third phase, leagues play a modified single-elimination tournament that determines Western Australia's qualifiers for the Australian Region tournament. The four semifinal round berths will include two quarterfinal round winners and two teams that progressed through second-chance games. The schedule is designed so that leagues that are seeded higher based on preliminary round performance have a shorter path through the second-chance bracket than do leagues that finished lower in preliminary round competition. The two teams which reach the championship game qualify for the Australian Region tournament, as do two teams that progress through second-chance games.

Country leagues play a two-stage qualifying tournament, with the winner advancing to the Australian Region tournament.
