On first glance, the bottom half of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament bracket appears to be loaded.
Three of the four teams with winning records in the tournament, which will be held at Central Hardin, are in bottom half of the bracket. All three teams have 24 or more victories.
“The bottom of the bracket is a little tough,” Taylor County coach Jeff Gumm said. “But the bottom line is when you get to region, you need to play good to win.”
