    As baseball season intensifies, so does Public League Division A

    Depending on who you ask, Public League baseball’s top division — Division A — is wide open, chock-full of solid teams all gunning for league supremacy. What makes the division so fascinating to monitor (besides the plethora of talented players within) is its local flavor: six of the 13 teams hail from the Northeast, with another containing some local residents on its roster. While all 13 earn an automatic berth to the postseason (the first round begins on May 11), who will emerge as champions? Here’s a closer look at those squads to date, how they’ve fared so far, where they’re going and what they love about playing in such a strong division, which is as balanced as it is deep (division records through Tuesday, April 14):

    Blast from the past

    Think leg warmers, Reeboks, acid-washed jeans, skinny ties and big hair. Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s 1984 grads are planning to attend their 30th reunion next month at the Quartett Club on Southampton Road dressed in 1980s clothing. Mix in ’80s music and the nostalgia that is the spirit of such an event, and this reunion is shaping up to be one great party.
