Four area baseball teams prepare for postseason
With all of the regular-season baseball games now in the books, four of the area’s seven teams are getting ready for the playoff season. The teams from Floresville, La Vernia, Stockdale, and Falls City have all advanced.
In District 29-4A, the Floresville Tigers started the district season on fire, but hit a bit of a skid. The team fought back and secured the wins they needed, eventually finishing third to easily grab a spot in the postseason.
The Tigers are set to begin their playoff run this Thursday, May 1, as they travel to Hallettsville to take on the Victoria East Titans. The bi-district meeting will be a single-game playoff, with the winner advancing to the area round of play.
In Class 3A, the state-ranked La Vernia Bears have continued to live up to their billing. The Bears blew through District 28, and closed out the regular season with a 10-0 shutout over Pleasanton.
The champs will face Fredericksburg in the bi-district round of play. Like Floresville, La Vernia also has a one-game playoff, with the winner advancing to the area round of the playoffs. The meeting between the Bears and Billies is set for this Friday, May 2, and will be played in La Vernia. The game is set to begin at 7:30 p.m.
With three area teams competing in District 28-2A, the odds looked good to send a team into the playoffs. Stockdale stepped up and grabbed that honor, as the Brahmas finished fourth in the district behind the teams from Hallettsville, Schulenburg, and Luling.
Stockdale will battle Comfort in a best-of-three series beginning this Thursday, May 1, at 7 p.m. Game two will be Friday, May 2, also at 7 p.m. If a third game is needed, it will be played Saturday, May 3, at 4 p.m. All games will be played at Samuel Clemens High School in Schertz.
The fourth and final team to make the playoffs from the Wilson County area this year is the Falls City Beavers. Falls City put together a great season and easily won District 31-1A. Unlike the other classifications that take four teams into the postseason, Class 1A still only advances three teams from each district, with the champions earning a bye. Falls City will therefore coast through the bi-district round, and begin its playoff run in the area championship.
