With four teams hosting and five county schools competing, the first round of the state baseball playoffs will begin Friday, April 22.

The champions and runners-up in all areas 1A-6A will advance to the first round at the home site of the area winners according to a pre-drawn bracket for each class. Play is double elimination in a best-two-of-three series. All area runners-up will travel for the first round.

The first and second games of each series will be played as a doubleheader on the first day of the series. The host team will serve as the “home team” in the first game of the series. The traveling team will be the designated “home team” in the second game. The host team will be the home team if the third game is necessary on Saturday, April 23.

The Alabama High School Athletic Association has set the price of admission at $10 for a doubleheader and $8 for a third game.
