DP's 2022 Playoff Picks

dpPostseason2Postseason Predictions 2.0: In 2022 we have returned to the traditional playoff format for you to pick apart. As always, DP has compiled our predictions as we surveyed the staff from across South Carolina to see who makes their way out of district play. As always, we will be correct on some but on the flip side we have been known to swing and miss! Many variables go into this ranking: pitching match-ups, pitch count rules, travel and on occasion the weather could play a huge factor on who advances! Take a moment to see what we have and if it conflicts with your thoughts. Remember, this is just our opinion and you are free to have one as well! Best of luck to all teams in their quest for a state title. Let the games begin!
