After Friday night, the state was set for one of the more exciting weeks of prep baseball. Under the new playoff format for the 2021 season, we are getting an opportunity to see the first ever best-of-three series to see who advances to “The Dance”. With most classifications getting the Upper and Lower State series off and running, DP turned its attention to the 3A Upper State division Monday evening as the Patriots of Powdersville are playing host to the West-Oak Warriors. Both skippers (Wade Padgett – Powdersville & Nick Groomes – West-Oak) are in uncharted waters and we are sure will have their clubs prepared for an exciting week of baseball!
