Class 1A Baseball, How to Make the Playoffs & District Alignment

We take a quick look at how to Qualify for the Regional and State Tournaments. At the bottom we quickly review the changes to the Districts.


1. Each District will qualify its top two finishers in each district to regionals.

2. The next six teams in the RPI/MaxPreps Rankings will also make regionals.  If a district has fewer than 5 teams, then it will receive only one automatic qualifier and the remaining qualifier will be selected from the RPI/MaxPreps rankings.

3. District champions will be seeded by RPI/Maxpreps 1-5, with the top 4 serving as regional hosts.  The fifth district champion will be seeded 5th.  The remaining teams will be seeded in RPI/MaxPreps order, avoiding first-round district match-ups.

4. Class 1A teams must play a minimum of 12 games to qualify for postseason play.

1A District Information

District Assignments: Schools may elect to compete in a full schedule within their district to determine their seeds for the district tournament play or to establish some other method.  This must be determined before the season begins and reported to CHSAA by March 15th.  Also multi-league districts must decide their tournament seeding procedure prior to the begging of the season.
