    Pretty good list. Highlands should be #1 though.

    True, but still you can't assume they beat everyone just based on D1 vs D2 or NAIA level talent...that's why baseball is the best game...on any given day as they say. Beechwood should have outscored their opponents by a wide margin a few years back with all the hitters they had just like the BRM did back in the 70's. They had marginal pitching (better than given credit for) but just out hit everyone...Everyone wanted to crown them champs but they couldn't get out of the region...let alone state.

    From a 8 th region viewpoint, Dixie had a good run in the 9th region tournament they were taken lightly and took out a good team . The region is just start of the journey ,state is only thing that matters .

    I’d be willing to bet my next paycheck that Hergott doesn’t play/pitch another inning of baseball... the gambler in me wouldn’t mind parlaying that and saying Noe won’t either.

    A difference between throwing and pitching. Baseball is a tough sport to just show up when tryouts start. Not sure if baseball is their focus. Can be a humbling experience.

    If Cov Cath can hold good teams to under 4 runs, they have a chance to be really good this year. Talent all around the diamond.
    Highlands pitching staff is a rare thing. Barring injury, they are the clear favorite.
    Beechwood has excellent returning talent. I have no idea what their pitching staff looks like, but they will be a challenge come tournament time.

    There are some really good teams this year in the 9th Region. The top of the list is Highlands until someone knocks them off. Cooper, Covcath, St. Henry, Beechwood, Ryle and Dixie will all be contenders. Obviously, no one has the staff that Highlands has but baseball is a long season and crazy things can happen.

    The only contenders will be Highlands, Cooper, CovCath, and Beechwood.

    It would be fun to see a Baioni (kids) vs Grey (kids) in a regional finals. Make a best out of 7 series just for more Coaching enjoyment. Both great coaches and people.
