We have reached the final four in the 2021 PIAA postseason and the penultimate Trib HSSN state baseball rankings as we prepare for the final week of the season.

As expected in the first two round of the state playoffs, there were plenty of changes as teams that missed out on district gold are hungry and playing hard to win a state title.

Three teams dropped out of the Top 5 in Class A, two teams each in 6A, 5A, 4A and 2A and the fewest changes came in 3A with only one team falling out from last week.

Only two No. 1 teams from last week remain on top: District 6 Martinsburg Central in 3A and undefeated Taylor Riverside from District 2 in 2A.
