Baseball Playoffs: North Semifinals

The North semifinals begin Friday, and they continue Saturday and Monday. We’ve got 13 NeMiss teams still alive, which is a very good number. I’m especially looking forward to that Tishomingo Co.-Lafayette Co. series, which oughta be a doozy.

    I hear ya, Brad. Seeing LC and TC duke it out will be a great matchup. Matt Davis vs. Chris Gullick will be a great matchup on Friday (if LC pitches him), Mize vs. Davis could also be a good one. I’m going to have an interview up with Hunter Mize either tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Oh yeah, Brad, is there ANY way you can get me ANY stats on Lafayette County for the series preview? If you can, please email them to me.

    Game Three (if needed) Lafayette @ Tish County Monday 6 pm

  4. Thanks, dude. I’ll see what I can do about those stats.

    Alright, TC’s stats are crazy right now and I’m unavailable to get any of theirs.

    Is there a backup plan in case of weather on Friday night, especially for the Tupelo series?

  7. The backup plans will depend on what the teams agree to do. There is no directive given from the MHSAA on what you must do, but I imagine we’ll see some Monday doubleheaders when a team is hosting Games 2 and 3.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if some folks played on Sunday – East Union did that in the first round, I think. I just hope we don’t get backed into Tuesday, with Thursday being the start of North half.

    I agree, Brad. Pitching staffs will suffer for all teams with only 2 days one true days rest before the next round.
