Some of the districts around the state have started their baseball postseason while others will lift the curtain on the playoffs this upcoming week.

Either way, the end of the regular season brought very few changes to this week’s Trib HSSN baseball state rankings.

Only three teams lost their spots in the Top 5, including two in Class 2A. McConnellsburg and Schuylkill Haven in 2A and West Mifflin in 4A were shown the door, leaving spots open for Bald Eagle and Halifax in 2A and Pope John Paul II in 4A.

There was only one change at No. 1, and that was in 6A where Father Judge lost twice and dropped to No. 4, giving Central Dauphin a chance to shine at No. 1.

The other top teams remain in their lofty spot heading into the heart of their district playoffs, including Chichester in 5A, Cathedral Prep in 4A, Riverside in 3A, Serra Catholic in 2A and Southern Fulton in A.
