Diamond Classic Finals Predictable?

     We are a month away from the Diamond Classic High School baseball championship game at Cooley Law School Stadium.  And the ten team field is about a week away from getting announced.  But this looks predictable to me.  Maybe DeWitt and Holt fill out two of the semi-final berths but it's Grand Ledge vs. Lansing Catholic in the final and Catholic wins 7-4.  Second Classic crown for the Cougars, first since 1986!  How about that?  It's usually a Grand Ledge victory and the Comets could win this year, but they split with Catholic in an early doubleheader and were nearly swept.

     Catholic is 16-1 and crushes everyone.  Catholic can make a run in the class B state tournament where the Cougars made it to the title game a year ago.  Teams need luck in these tournaments with a single game knockout, but the Cougars have depth and Grand Ledge looks like its usual self so I would not be a bit surprised if they meet again next month.
