We’re gonna get to that place where we really want to go. — Bruce Springsteen “Born To Run”
This year, the ILH baseball championship is pretty simple. There’s no first-round (regular season) winner and second round (tournament) winner.
Now that the regular season is done, there will only be one route to the title and that is by winning the leagues postseason tournament.
The eight teams finished a seven-game regular season that determined the seedings. Kamehameha (5-2) won a tiebreaker against Mid-Pacific (5-2) and Saint Louis (5-2) to get the top seed.
