Some of the district tournaments haven’t finished yet, but we now know the eight teams that will be playing in the 12th Region baseball and softball tournaments. Here’s the field for each, with seeds in parentheses for those who are through with district play:
Baseball: Danville (1), Boyle County (2), West Jessamine, Mercer County, Somerset, Rockcastle County, Southwestern (1), Wayne County (2).
Danville won the 45th District on Tuesday, and Southwestern won the 48th. The other two districts will be decided today: West Jessamine at Mercer in the 46th and Somerset vs. Rockcastle at Pulaski County.
Softball: Garrard County (1), Boyle County (2), Mercer County, East Jessamine, Pulaski County (1), Rockcastle County (2), Southwestern (1), Wayne County (2).
Garrard has won the 45th District, Pulaski has won the 47th and Southwestern has won the 48th. Mercer and East Jessamine play today at Burgin to decide the 46th.
Boyle County will host the regional baseball tournament for the first time, and Pulaski County will host the softball regional. It appears that the draws for both regional tournaments will be held Saturday morning. The softball draw is set for 10 a.m. at Pulaski, and the baseball draw is tentatively set for 11 a.m. at Boyle. Both tournaments are expected to begin Monday with four first-round games.
