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.
