Crescent City Sports to live stream Destrehan-Hahnville baseball showdown Wednesday
Crescent City Sports’ extensive live streaming coverage of high school baseball continues Wednesday with a matchup between longtime St. Charles Parish rivals Destrehan and Hahnville – and it has rivalry, championship and postseason ramifications.
CCS will live stream the matchup between the Wildcats and Tigers from Boutte at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Live coverage will begin just prior to first pitch, with Ken Trahan and Danny Riehm describing the action.
At stake is the District 7-5A championship in the final district game for both teams. Destrehan (20-9, 10-1 in district) has a one-game lead in the standings over Hahnville (13-16, 9-2) and has already clinched no worse than a share of the title. The Tigers can become co-champions with a win, which would complete a two-game sweep of Destrehan after a 10-0 road victory over the Wildcats Monday.
With Monday’s win, Hahnville rose 10 spots to No. 23 in the unofficial Class 5A power ratings. That may be enough of a jump to secure the Tigers’ spot in the postseason, but a win Wednesday would produce an automatic berth as a district champion.
Destrehan is currently No. 10 in the power ratings, and a victory would not only secure an outright title, but possibly help the Wildcats to jump into the top eight seeds and a chance and the opportunity to be at home for the first two rounds of the playoffs.
Crescent City Sports will feature live streaming of no fewer than 30 high school sporting events throughout the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce up to 10 more events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
