DP's 2019 Playoff Picks

dp logo1

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 2019 postseason...We hope our success rate is a bit better than it was in the Districts...Bulletin board material for coaches now, go!
