With the district playoff complete, here are the weekly Trib HSSN state baseball rankings prior to the first pitch of the 2019 state playoffs.

The top five this week consists of all district champions. These are teams that have won one championship this spring and are now looking for more gold.

All six classifications had two teams exit and two enter the top five, with the exception of Class 6A, which had three teams ousted and three new entrants.

Pine-Richland, Seton LaSalle and California are the only WPIAL teams still ranked among the best in the state this week.
