Five Eddy County teams make baseball and softball tournament brackets

The final week of sports in the COVID-19 altered season has come. On Saturday the New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA) released its brackets for the baseball and softball state championships.

Five of the six high school teams in Eddy County received bids to the eight-team bracket. Like with basketball, the higher seed will host the first two rounds of the tournament or the teams will meet at a neutral site if travel requires it. The championship games take place at UNM this weekend.

Here’s who will be representing Eddy County this week for a chance to bring back Blue or even Red from the Duke City.
