This might sound like a made-up method, but I got this out of a Rotisserie Rule Book years ago and I use it in my leagues. == Take the tied teams and rate them in each catagory with the higher team getting two points and the lower one point (just like normal, except you only rate the tied teams). The higher points is your Champion. == If there is still a tie, take the innings pitched times three added to the at bats. The higher total of this number is the Champion.

I agree with the poster above that it would not be fair to install a tie-breaker at this late date. The only fair thing for this year is Co-Champs. You need to come up with a tie-breaker for next year.

roto doesn't have tiebreakers.
if 2 teams are 1st place, then combine 1st and 2nd place winnings, and each one gets half of that. the next place is 3rd place and he takes the 3rd place prize.
this is the rule i've always seen in roto ties.

Our tiebreaker goes as follows:

-In case of an overall standings tie, head-to-head category comparison will serve as the tie-breaker. Respective performances are calculated and a point is given to each team for bettering the other.

-If still tied, each total AB + IP(3) will be computed. Highest total wins.

I am glad to see our league isn't the only one that uses that tiebreaker. In 2007 we had a tie for first on the final Sunday. There was a one game playoff for a Wild-Card position the next day, so those stats counted and the two teams were still tied. We then used the tie-breaker that you described above. The catagories broke it, we never got to the second part of it.
