Tuesday, May 7, 2019 | 10:24 PM

On Thursday, the WPIAL will unveil the brackets for the 2019 district softball playoffs.

Seventy-three teams have punched their ticket for the Path to Peterswood with only one more spot, possibly two, up for grabs in Class A.

Five classification’s fields are now set with the only question mark being the battle for fourth place in Section 1-A.

Rochester hosts Quigley Catholic on Wednesday. If the Rams win, they clinch and the Spartans are eliminated. If Quigley Catholic wins, the Spartans clinch and the Rams would need to beat Cornell on Thursday to also qualify for the playoffs.

Watch the official unveiling of the brackets at noon Thursday on the TribLive High School Sports Network.

Trib HSSN will have exclusive broadcast coverage of the softball playoffs, sponsored by Carlow University.
