The MIAA Tournament has reached the Final Four in Divisions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. A few interesting nuggets before we break down the semifinal matchups ...
- The oft-criticized MIAA nailed the seeding process in Division 1 and Division 2. The top four seeds in each division advanced to the semifinals.
- The Hockomock League is clearly the power conference in the state of Massachusetts this season. Of the 12 semifinal teams in Divisions 1, 2 and 3, six are Hockmock League teams.
- The elimination of sectional tournaments (North, South, East, West) has favored the South region this spring. Of the 16 remaining teams in Division 1, 2, 3 and 4, 11 would have previously been in the South. That means only four could have advanced rather than 11 this season.
Here's a look at the state semifinal matchups with schedules, start times, pitching matchups, players to watch and predictions.
