After a very lengthy regular 2022 Texas High School Baseball regular season, now enter the playoffs. Teams across the state are gearing up for the Bi-District Round, which is set to begin this weekend. In South Texas, 32 big Bi-District Matchups are scheduled to take place this weekend. So let’s take a look at the South Texas Baseball Playoffs.

Firstly, we start off with the 29-6A/30-6A Bi-District, where teams from San Antonio will clash with Laredo Area teams. These are the matchups that will take place:

1- San Antonio Stevens (29-6A) vs 4- Laredo Nixon (30-6A)

2- San Antonio O’Connor (29-6A) vs 3- Laredo United (30-6A)

3- San Antonio Harlan (29-6A) vs 2- Eagle Pass (30-6A)

4- San Antonio Taft (29-6A) vs 1- Laredo Alexander (30-6A)

Next up we look at the 31-6A/32-6A in the Rio Grande Valley. For 32-6A, All teams from the 2021 Postseason are in the playoffs in 2022. Two Bi-District Matchups are a rematch of last year’s Bi-District Round. These are the matchups that will take place: 

1- PSJA (31-6A) vs 4- Harlingen (32-6A)

2- Edinburg Vela (31-6A) vs 3- San Benito (32-6A)

3- La Joya (31-6A) vs 2- Weslaco (32-6A)

4- Mission (31-6A) vs 1- Los Fresnos (32-6A)

Switching gears to 5A Baseball, we first look at District 29-5A/30-5A Bi District meeting, arguably a very interesting set of Bi-District matchups, which feature the fabulous four of CCISD Baseball. For 30-5A, The Palmview Lobos prove to be the toughest team from the Rio Grande Valley in that District. Here are the matchups:

1- Corpus Christi Ray (29-5A) vs 4- Rio Grande City (30-5A)

2- Corpus Christi Veterans Memorial (29-5A) vs 3- Mission Veterans Memorial (30-5A)

3- Corpus Christi Moody (29-5A) vs 2- Roma (30-5A)

4- Corpus Christi Carroll Tigers (29-5A) vs La Joya Palmview Lobos (30-5A)

Down to the RGV we go for the 31-5A/32-5A Bi-District round. This Bi-District round features two teams who entered the playoffs after a very rough start. Those two teams being McAllen and Brownsville Porter. Both teams found themselves low in their standings and quickly turned it around to take the 4th seeds in their districts. For Porter, this matchup has more meaning. In 2021, the Cowboys eliminated the Diamondbacks in a three game series, sending shockwaves across the RGV. Porter once again will meet Sharyland Pioneer. Here are the matchups:

1- Sharyland Pioneer (31-5A) vs 4- Brownsville Porter (32-5A)

2- McAllen Rowe (31-5A) vs 3- Edcouch-Elsa (32-5A)

3- Sharyland (31-5A) vs 2- Brownsville Veterans (32-5A)

4- McAllen (31-5A) vs 1- Weslaco East (32-5A)

Now we move down to 4A, which is home to arguably two of the best teams in the Coastal Bend, if not South Texas. The Sinton Pirates, who lost in the State Tournament have been on fire in 2022. Alongside Sinton we have the Calallen Wildcats, who just captured another District Title. Rockport-Fulton and Alice are other teams to lookout for in the 4A side of things. Down in the RGV 4A, the Hidalgo Pirates have been red hot in 2022, becoming the Undefeated 32-4A District Champions

These are the 25-4A/26-4A Bi-District Matchups: 

1- Needville (25-4A) vs 4- Port Lavaca Calhoun (25-4A)

2- Sweeny (25-4A) vs 3- Ingleside (26-4A)

3- Columbia (25-4A) vs 2- Rockport Fulton (26-4A)

4- Brazosport (25-4A) vs 1- Sinton (26-4A)

Now we look at the 31-4A/32-4A BiDistrict Matchups

1- Calallen (31-4A) vs 4- Raymondville (32-4A)

2- CC Tuloso-Midway (31-4A) vs 3- La Grulla (32-4A)

3- Alice (31-4A) vs 2- La Feria (32-4A)

4- Robstown (31-4A) vs 1- Hidalgo (32-4A)

Lastly we look at 3A South Texas Baseball, Here are some of the key matchups to lookout for. Some teams to watch are CC London, Mathis, Odem, Santa Gertrudis and Bishop. Here are the 29-3A/30-3A Bi-District Matchups:

1- Orange Grove (29-3A) vs Falfurrias (30-3A)

2- Taft (29-3A) vs Santa Gertrudis Academy (30-3A)

3- Odem (29-3A) vs Bishop (30-3A)

4- Mathis (29-3A) vs CC London (30-3A)

Now we look at the RGV in 3A where the playoffs are set and prove to be exciting. Here are the 31-3A/32-3A Bi-District:

1- IDEA Quest (31-3A) vs 4- Brownsville Jubilee (32-3A)
