Class 3A Baseball Regional Projections

We have one week left of the regular season and it’s crunch time for many teams.  Here is a look at the regional projections for Class 3A.  I plan to update Class 3A and Class 2A on Friday morning with new RPI data.  The RPI data I used was pulled on 6/9.  Of course, these are just projections and nothing official.

RPI Rankings (Official Rankings via Chsaanow.com)

How Class 3A 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. Regional hosts receive a bye in the first game.  There will be 3 teams at each regional.
  3. 8 regional winners advance to the Double Elimination State Tournament. (See picture at the end of bracket)
