Class 2A Baseball Regional/State Tournament Projections

Class 2A 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 2A.  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 5/25.  Of course, these are very early projections so expect a ton of changes as we move deeper into the regular season.

How Class 2A Playoff Work

  1. 24 teams to regionals based on RPI.  The 8 teams with the highest RPI will host regionals, the remaining 24 teams will be ranked by RPI and then any first round league match-ups will be adjusted.  The bottom 12 teams may be moved for geographical purposes.
  2. The Higher seeded team will determine the “home team” and last at bat in all first-round games.  From Quarterfinals through the finals a coin flip by the site director will determine “home team” and last at bat.
  3. 8 regional winners advance to the Double Elimination State Tournament. (See picture at the end of bracket)

I am going to give the regional bracket a shot.  I will do my best with Geography, but I could be off in terms of Geography.  Remember for Class 2A it stays as a single elimination bracket.
