High school baseball season is officially here and every team is beginning their journey to either Joliet (Class 3A and 4A) or Peoria (Class 1A and 2A) for the state finals. 

Our conference outlooks kick off with Mid-Illini baseball, a haven for some of the best in baseball that Central Illinois has to offer.
