Baseball/Softball region standings, playoff schedules

Although a handful of area baseball and softball regions won't be locked in until Tuesday night, several area teams already know their first-round playoff opponents and locations.

So far, the following Class AAAA and AAA teams have already secured playoff bids:

Baseball - Carolina Forest, Socastee, Georgetown, Myrtle Beach, St. James.

Softball - Conway, Carolina Forest, North Myrtle Beach, St. James, Georgetown, Socastee

Additionally, Waccamaw and Aynor softball will play Monday evening at least once. If Aynor wins the first game - scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. at Waccamaw - the Blue Jackets will clinch the No. 2 seed out of the region and play host to a first-round playoff game on Thursday. Should Waccamaw win that game, the two will immediately hold a one-game playoff, with the winner of that contest taking second place and the loser finishing third. Both teams have already qualified for the postseason.

Region standings were not available for Region VIII-AA baseball, but we do know that Aynor and Loris are also playoff bound.

The full-playoff lineup is expected to be available no later than Wednesday morning.
