2009 Section II baseball playoff brackets

The Section II baseball brackets were released on Wednesday afternoon and click on the links in red below to open up a digital copy.
Games begin Thursday afternoon and many classes continue play on Saturday. Should rain wash out Thursday's games, they will be rescheduled for Friday.

Class AA
It's anyone's game in a wide-open field.
Shenendehowa captured the only bye with a points championship in the Suburban Council even though Columbia had a better overall record.
Albany earned the No. 1 Big 10 seed over CBA (the two split the Big 10 regular season title) by a tiebreaker.
Troy and Columbia square off Thursday at Columbia High School in what could be an offensive showdown between two Rensselaer County squads.
A potential Troy-La Salle rematch (it would be their fourth meeting of the season) awaits in the quarterfinals should the Cadets and Flying Horses both win their opening round matchups.
Columbia has a tough road ahead, as they'll have to beat Troy, La Salle or Shaker and then probably Albany just to get to the championship game.
CBA and Bethlehem could be dangerous teams in the Shenendehowa side.

Class A
Lansingburgh earned the No. 1 seed but they'll have to beat a tough Suburban Council team in Mohonasen just to escape to the second round.
Schalmont can score runs in bunches and might have enough pitching to take a trip to Joe Bruno Stadium, but if Jordan Zareski and TJ McLaughlin can bring their A-games on the mound for the Knights, Lansingburgh may be able to wrap up a Section II title right at home in the Collar City.

Class B
Five teams earned first round byes (Chatham, Granville, Fonda-Fultonville, Spa Catholic and Hudson) but even the lower seeded teams such as Watervliet and Ravena will put up a fight in what could be the toughest bracket in the section.
Still, look for Chatham and Granville to be duking it out in the title game.

Class CC
Maple Hill could likely emerge from the No. 4 seed, if they can topple Lake George in a semifinal game. (The Wildcats did the same in the 2008-09 basketball playoffs).
Hoosic Valley and Cambridge could meet in the semifinals, which would be a Wasaren League dream come true for Hoosic Valley. HV toppled Cambridge twice during the regular season and would have to be hopeful in a rematch with a trip to Bruno Stadium on the line.
It should be Maple Hill vs. a Wasaren League team in the final.

Class C
Waterford turned a CHVL championship season into a top seed (much to the chagrin of Fort Plain, seeded second) and the Fordians have an inside track to the title game.
In the CC/C playoff, anyone can win, but I think the C teams have an edge this year.

Class D
Loudonville Christian, Heatly and Germantown represent the CHVL in this year's field. The Eagles have a shot as the No. 2 seed, but Fort Ann has put together a nice record and will likely be fighting until the end.
