Bluejays to face host Ballard in baseball playoff opener

Second baseman Carter Iben and center fielder Juan Hernandez take defensive positions as Fausto Beato pitches for host Perry against Ballard July 2.

The Class 3A and 4A postseason brackets have been revealed. Teams already knew which squads would be in which eight-team substate, but the four-team district seedings were not determined until earlier this week.

In Class 3A District 13 Perry (1-11) will face host Ballard (10-4) at NightHawk Field in Slater July 17, with Bondurant-Farrar (5-10) hosting Saydel (5-13) on the other side of the bracket. The winners will meet, July 20, in Slater.

Host ADM (9-5) and Newton (1-15) meet in one District 14 semifinal, with North Polk (11-7) hosting Nevada (6-12). Those victors will battle each other in Adel July 20.

The Substate 7 Final will be played, at a site to be determined, July 22. All games will begin at 7 p.m.
