Top teams, players in 2022 Jacksonville high school baseball playoff chase

To use a baseball analogy in the middle of baseball season, this weekend is like the seventh inning, and it’s time to stretch.

Who’s safe? Who’s out? And who needs a big-time late-inning push to avoid getting struck out for the postseason?

Jacksonville’s high school baseball season enters its closing stages in the next two weeks, and by the month’s end, teams across the First Coast will be readying for the Florida High School Athletic Association district tournaments.

Schools across Northeast Florida are vying to rise in the rankings to begin the march toward Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, site of the FHSAA baseball championships between May 18-25.

This year, as in most other team sports, those rankings – a modified version of the MaxPreps formula – are taking center stage for the FHSAA. Once the association locks in the numbers on April 23, the rankings will determine seedings for the district tournaments, and they will ultimately determine which teams receive at-large playoff berths along with the automatically-qualified district champions.
