Baseball sectional dates and times announced

By DAVID RISLEY - drisley@thecouriertimes.com

The host schools, for the most part, have announced dates and times for their sectionals in the IHSAA state tournament, which begins next week. The IHSAA would like for all sectional championship games to be Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) if at all possible.

Two of the six local teams are in baseball sectionals that have some overlap with the softball sectionals. Shenandoah is in Class 2A Sectional 40 at Frankton and plays Monroe Central in the opening round at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 23. That winner faces the Muncie Burris vs, Frankton winner in the first semifinal at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 24.

In Class 2A Sectional 41 at Centerville, Hagerstown plays Cambridge City Lincoln in the opening round at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 16. That winner faces the Union County vs. Winchester winner Thursday, May 24 in the first semifinal game.

In Class 3A Sectional 24 at Yorktown, New Castle plays Guerin Catholic in the second semifinal game at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 25.

In Class 2A Sectional 41 at Heritage Christian, Knightstown plays Indianapolis Scecina in the second semifinal game at noon Saturday, May 26.

No dates or times were posted on MaxPreps for Class A Sectional 56 hosted by Seton Catholic at Richmond’s McBride Stadium.

In that sectional, Randolph Southern plays Blue River Valley on the only game of the opening round, and Tri faces that winner in the second semifinal game.
