League Baseball Chairperson Rob Snyder of Cedar Crest has upped the ante on the playoff scenario theme that has been running through the spring season this year. Not only has he accounted for the as yet undecided Section 3 Championship, he’s addressed the foul weather forecast for Saturday.
In Section 3, Garden Spot plays Lebanon Catholic today (5/10). If Garden Spot wins, that will force a tie with Manheim Central for the top spot in Section 3. That will result in a playoff game for the Section 3 Championship. That game would be played at Ephrata’s War Memorial on Thursday at 6pm.
The Quarterfinals are as follows, all games at War Memorial on Saturday, May 13th:
- Section 3 Champion (GardenSpot/Manheim Central) v. Lampeter-Strasburg, 10 am
- Lancaster Catholic v. Warwick, 1 pm
- E-Town v. Section 3 Runner Up (Garden Spot/Manheim Central), 4 pm
- Penn Manor v. Annville-Cleona, 7 pm
If Saturday is a washout and games are unable to play on Saturday on the turf at War Memorial, the following tentative game schedule will be played on Monday (games that are on the same side of the bracket will be paired together):
- E-Town v. Garden Spot/Manheim Central at Manheim Township at 4pm
- Lancaster Catholic v. Warwick at Manheim Township at 7pm
- GardenSpot/Manheim Central v. Lampeter-Strasburg at War Memorial at 4pm
- Penn Manor v. Annville-Cleona at War Memorial at 7pm
If some but not all games are played Saturday, the above schedule will be adjusted.
