The debate will continue to rage on.
After being snakebitten in some sports – particularly in boys basketball – by the New Mexico Activities Association rule that district champions get a first-round home game regardless of seed, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team is the beneficiary of that rule.
Los Alamos was seeded ninth for the Class AAAA baseball playoffs but will play host to higher seed in the best-of-3 first round series. Moriarty, the eighth seed, will travel to Bomber Field for the tournament.
The first round of the state AAAA tournament will start Friday and continue through Saturday. Friday's game at Bomber Field is slated for 4:30 p.m. Saturday's two games, if both are necessary, will be held at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Los Alamos clinched the District 2AAAA title Saturday after sweeping a pair of games from the Capital Jaguars in Santa Fe. Los Alamos needed just one win in the regular season-ending doubleheader, but took the two games big, winning 21-6 in the first game and 21-8 in the second.
Despite the 2AAAA championship, its first since joining the district in 2001, Los Alamos (15-10 overall, 11-1 in district) was given just a ninth seed, at least in part because it lost several games in the nondistrict season to higher-seeded teams Albuquerque Academy, Farmington and Piedra Vista.
