PREVIEW: District 116 Baseball Tournament

Base 6-2
Listen live online Friday via Michigan Sports Radio and the Slocum Sports Network to all three games of the MHSAA District 116 baseball tournament at Climax-Scotts High School.   The district features three teams above 20 wins and two ranked in the latest Division 4 coaches poll.   The tournament begins at 11 a.m. with fourth-ranked Hackett Catholic against Bellevue.   Game two is set for 1:30 p.m. between 11th-rankd Climax-Scotts and Kalamazoo Christian.   The winners meet at 4 p.m. with the champion advancing to next week’s Regional at Decatur.

Last season’s District 116 final saw Hackett Catholic fall to eventual quarterfinalist Centreville 4-2.   Centreville is in a different district this year, with Climax-Scotts moving into 116 after claiming District 117 last season.  The Irish enter as the favorite by ranking and by overall record at 23-4, opening against the 10-19 Bellevue Broncos.  The second game sees a 20-4 Panther squad against a 20-12 Comet team.   Climax-Scotts swept Bellevue in the regular season, but didn’t play either Hackett or K-Christian.   Meanwhile, the Comets and Irish met thrice, splitting a doubleheader at Kalamazoo Christian and with a Hackett win in the City Tournament.

Listen to all three games Friday online via Michigan Sports Radio and the Slocum Sports Network with coverage starting prior to first pitch at 11 a.m.
