2012 BTD Baseball Bracket Challenge

New, 13 comments

I guess there's some interest for a second-annual bracket challenge here on BTD, so here it goes. Here's how it works:

  • First, pick the winners of the 16 Regionals
  • Second, pick the winners of the 8 Super Regionals
  • Thrid, pick the two teams that will compete in the CWS Championship Series
  • Finally, pick the CWS Champion

You will receive 1 point for each correctly picked Regional, 2 points for each Super Regional, 4 points for each CWS Series team, and 8 points for the champion. Standings will be updated at the end of each round. Below is a list of teams in each regional and their records. After listing the regional, I will state my pick.

So, there you have it. The Regionals are pretty chalky, with only Vanderbilt and Cal State Fullerton advancing. However, after that it gets a little crazy.

Please post your picks in the comments section. They need to be in by 9:00 AM Pacific on Friday morning. Winner will get one front page post on BTD.

Good Luck!
