The Charlotte Observer på Twitter: "Ardrey Kell High's baseball ...


After a 6 week seasons of virtual baseball games involving 32 area Charlotte High School Baseball Teams, its now time to play to a championship

The 17-32 seeds open round one, for the chance to move on to play the 9-16 seeds and then waiting those winners will be the top 8 seeds.

One the field is reduced to 4 teams in the Championship Bracket, a Best of three series will be held to determine the two final teams who will then battle it out on the home field of the Charlotte 49er’s in a Best of Three Series

All teams that are eliminated in round 3 will play for a Virtual Silver Championship

Other consolation games may be held for teams that do not advance to the Sweet 16.

Please remember this is all for fun and we have taken the opinions of multiple baseball coaches and fans as to how the games and championship should be played out. There is truly no way to honestly seed the event, so beyond the top 24 we have gone with a virtual draw for spots.

Sit back and enjoy as this Virtual event is simply one attempt by South Charlotte Sports Report to keep the focus on high school baseball after all the other local and state sports media has buried spring sports in their hot pursuit of what will happen to football and basketball. While I care about those sports, I refuse to not honor spring sports athletes with all they deserve and more.
