The regular season is over and the district playoffs are complete across the state.

Now the fun begins Monday with the start of the 2022 PIAA baseball playoffs.

Some classifications were hit hard by the end of the district playoffs, with three teams vacating their precarious position in the Trib HSSN state baseball rankings in half of the classes and a total of a dozen changes altogether from last week.

The newest teams included are all freshly crowned champions and bring momentum into the state playoffs. But beware of second-chance teams that fell short in the district but are still looking for gold at the end of another postseason ride.

Last week was a bumpy ride for a pair of top-ranked teams that fell down the ladder of defeat with changes at the top in Class 5A and A.

Manheim Central (5A) and Union (A) now join Bethlehem Liberty in 6A, Monsignor Bonner-Archbishop Prendergast in 4A, Martinsburg Central in 3A and Serra Catholic in 2A at No. 1 heading onto the Path to Penn State.
