PIAA baseball and softball sites

EDITOR’S NOTE: The PIAA released the state brackets on its website Friday morning, confirming what reported more than 15 hours earlier in the story posted below. Since that original post, we have added two opponents’ records.

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association continues to work on plans for its baseball and softball state tournaments, which open Monday.

The PIAA has not yet released the sites and starting times, but has learned of the sites and starting times to be used for first-round games involving District 2 teams.

Both Hazleton Area teams, as well as the Elk Lake baseball team and the Valley View and Mid Valley softball teams, will get to play at home.

Opponents, sites and times for all first-round games are below.
