DP's 2018 Playoff Picks


Post-season Predictions: Since everyone loves a good list or ranking, DP will take a stab at predicting each round of the prep playoffs. Things of this nature are not an exact science and pitching match-ups plus weather will always play a major hand in any bracket. And now pitch counts are a variable! We have surveyed our area scouts and this is what we came up with for the 2018 postseason...Bulletin board material for coaches now, go!
