Class 1A Baseball Regional/State Tournament Projections

Class 1A Baseball Regional/State Tournament Projections

We are in the early part of the baseball season but what I have decided to do was give us a early look at the Regional Projections for Class 1A.  I will dive much more into this next week but wanted to give us a jumping off point.  The RPI data I used was pulled on 5/20.  Of course, these are very early projections so expect a ton of changes as we move deeper into the regular season.

How Class 1A Playoff Works

12 teams to regionals, top two from each district and the remaining two by RPI.  District Champions will be seeded by RPI 1-5, with the top 4 serving as regional hosts.  The 5th district champion will be seeded 5th.  The remaining teams will be seeded in RPI order, avoiding first round district matchups.
