Div. 2-West District Preview (Reg. 1)

The biggest question about this district is if they are going to play or not. As of right now we are fairly sure that things will go off without a hitch. Also half of these teams have not actually gotten out on the field despite being in the wonderful world that is the Arizona baseball world. 

 

This is one region that I think does it right when it comes to combining their Division 1 and Division 2 teams. They all play in the same conference, share the all conference awards, but at the end of the day they split into the Div 1 and Div 2 teams for playoffs. With this though usually teams that are on the division 2 side of the conference records do not reflect how good the team actually is. For instance last year Arizona had both the division 1 National Champion (Central Arizona) and the Division 2 Runner up (Mesa). 

 

Over the past decade as we have been doing the teams that have made it have been a lot of the same but have all had equal success when making it to the National Tournament. Mesa went in 2019 (National Runner-Up), and in 2014 (National Champs); Scottsdale went in 

2018, 2015, 2013, and 2012; Phoenix in 2017; and GateWay in 2016 (National Runner-Up), and 2011. 

Pre-Season All-District Team

This is going to become more of a trend, more than likely. Due to how the world is, and the lack of practice we here at the JBB do not feel like we have enough information to put together a pre-season team that we feel is up to the standard that we like to hold our content to.
