Halfway through the state baseball playoffs, we present the next-to-last edition of the Trib HSSN PIAA baseball rankings.

Last week’s rankings featured all district champions. This week, we rank the final four in each class along with one eliminated team that will end the season in the top five.

Next week will feature the same five teams but possibly in a different order.

This week, 12 teams were chased from the state rankings from a week ago, and only North Allegheny, Beaver, Seton LaSalle, Serra Catholic and California are left from the WPIAL.

Here are the rankings for the week ending Friday, June 7. Their ranking from last week is in parentheses after their record.
