In week one of the playoffs, sixth place Light Bleu won two games to advance to the semi finals. Third place Royal Blue also advanced.

Game one saw 2nd place finisher Crimson score 6 runs in the bottom of the open inning to defeat Royal Blue.

In the second semifinal game, it was close all the way with both teams tied after seven innings. The Bombers were held scoreless in the top of the eighth, while the first-place finishers Purple Haze only managed one to take their first lead of the game.

In the open inning, after one initial out, the Bombers bats came alive, and by the time the inning was over, they had scored an overwhelming 12 runs to advance to the finals.

A smattering of runs by both teams in the first five innings of the championship game resulted in a 9 to 9 tie game. Beset by some injuries and replacements, Crimson would only score one more run in the next four innings. Light Bleu scored seven in the eighth and ninth to preserve a six run victory and become the playoff champions of the Winter 2024 season.

A season beset by multiple rainouts had finally come to an end. Celebrations continued at the postseason party at Harbortown.
