I know it's summer when I'm spending a sun-soaked day in the Farmingdale State press box. Tis that time of year again - one of the biggest, baddest days in high school baseball and we here at Newsday have got y'all covered. I thus present to you, a preview:

Class A, as opposed to AA and B, works on a pseudo-double elimination format. So, to quote many an old school hip hop song, let's break it down.
FIRST ROUND -
I'm a 1-to-8 seed! Congratulations! To borrow another...Read more »
