The first half of Round 1 is still going on (here’s the Diamond Region, which has links to the other regions at the bottom) but it’s time to get started on the second half.
Notes: Herr was only the second double-digit seed to advance past the first round. It’s another totally ’80s matchup and the second baseman might have his hands full with the extremely popular McGee.
Notes: McGwire had an easier time in the first round than I expected given some of his history. Lankford has a strong chance to pull the upset here, though, in one of the more interesting battles of the second round.
Come back in a couple of hours and we’ll head over to the Ballpark Village Region!
