How the Regional/State Tournament Work for Baseball. (Class 3A thru 1A)
How Class 3A Playoff Works
- The Top two teams from each district (designated by leagues and excluding the Colorado 7 and Confluence) will automatically qualify for the regional tournament. If any of the three teams playing in the 3A/4A Colorado 7 win that league or finish second place outright, that team would also automatically qualify. The remaining 18 (19.20) teams will qualify by RPI.
- The six (6) league champions plus the next 2 highest ranked teams by the final RPI standings will host regionals. Once those teams have been placed on the bracket, the committee will then place the remaining teams on the bracket utilizing the seeding process outlined in
Seeding Process-Class 3A, 4A, 5A”.
- The regional tournament will be single elimination, with the 8 regional winners advancing to a double elimination state tournament played at a predetermined site. The pairing will follow the seeds established prior to the district tournament.
How Class 2A Playoff Works
- Each of the seven districts will qualify it district champion to the regional/state bracket, with the remaining nine teams to be determined by RPI. The 16-team field will be seeded by the follow criteria:
- The teams will initially be ranked by RPI, avoiding any first-round match-ups with district opponents. Whenever possible, no teams from the same district shall be placed in the same quadrant. If a district champion and runner-up from the same district are ranked in the top 8 by RPI, one shall be placed in the top bracket and the other in the bottom bracket.
- CHSAA liaison will determine regional sites and set games times. The regional winner will advance to the semifinals and final games on Saturday, May 25, 2019.
How Class 1A Playoff Works
- Each district will qualify it district champion and runner-up to the regional/state bracket, with the remaining 8 teams to be determined by RPI. The teams will be seeded by RPI, avoiding first round matchups from the same district. The four District champions will host the regional tournament.
