If you are on opposite side of Eagleville you are in good shape.  They are the clear favorite.

Eagleville is good, no doubt. But they obviously got the 3 weakest teams down there in their bracket, just like two years ago.

They had the toughest bracket last year and no one said a word. You will never make everyone happy. Someone is always complaining.

Kyle Adams got beat tonight. 

UH is definitely sitting pretty in their bracket, but Eagleville is almost certainly going to make it to the final having to have only pitch 16 innings in 3 games.

I am curious on why the Single A schools complain about where they play but teams like Clarksville, Beech and Farragut do not complain when they had to play Siegel at Siegel. 

Because Siegel is a AAAA facility. A good AAAA facility. Eagleville is a 1A facility. Albeit a nice one, but still, it's a 1A facility. There's no way around that fact.

When I was in school, we played our 1A state tournament games at AutoZone Park, USA Stadium, Christian Brothers University, FedEx Park, and then even still Riverdale, which was one of the best AAA facilities in the state (I enjoyed playing at The Reservation, although the sunsets were brutal.)

Now, kids have to travel 4 hours to play on a 1A field nearly 20 miles out of Murfreesboro. A field that, quite frankly, isn't even as nice as where a lot of teams play their district tournaments.

Riverdale is a AAAA school. 

Eagleville has a pretty nice field. The seating definitely could be better, but the field is beautiful. Have you seen the field? 

At least the Championship game is played at MTSU.

I'd agree, but the only reference we have between them and the 3 others is that Halls run ruled UC a couple weeks ago. 

I know some might have comments towards this, but in my opinion 1A baseball in West Tennessee is down outside of a handful of teams. It used to be competitive with more teams before the new classification cycle

    • The rebuilding of this mess will be called "Operation Scorched Earth".
    • Some schools in better parts of the burbs in Chicago have done that. They would send busses to inner city Chicago to pick up a school to play them & take them back. Anybody from that school that wanted to go would be provided trans to & from & free food & admission. The team that came would get fed after the game too
    • Yes. Very lethal, especially her step back game.  Very good at getting separation.  She'll be a big fish in a small pond at unaka.  North Greene has a very good post.  She's a double double every game.  The other 4 are solid.  Abingdon has the best post I've seen so far.  
    • Pencil them in for Black Friday due to the district 7 and region 8 being weak. Pearl-Cohn is still the favorite out of the Regions 5/6 but there are much better suitors to potentially eliminate PC compared to the suitors trying to eliminate Haywood.
    • Yea I agree! June means nothing especially if you don’t make it past region! Champions are made in March not June.
