The calendar has turned to May, and that means only one thing for the high school baseball scene, playoff baseball is in full tilt! Tonight starts the upper and lower state tournaments all across South Carolina and tonight DP was at “The Reservation” to lock in on TL Hanna vs Riverside. Both clubs went to a second game Monday night to secure their right to play in tonight’s contest. TL Hanna is no stranger to making a run as they have won their district four out of the last five years. Traditionally, Riverside is a regular as well. Although this is their first appearance in nine years, there was a stretch where Riverside claimed the district title eleven consecutive times (1999-2009). With a history lesson complete, let’s take a look to see who gets a leg up in the upper state bracket.
