The FCBL announced the playoff schedule for this week, and the Bristol Blues will host their first game in a best-of-three series at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Muzzy Field.
The No. 2 seed Blues (31-23) will face either the No. 3 North Shore Navigators (30-25), No. 4 Worcester Bravehearts (30-26) or No. 5 Pittsfield Suns (28-27).
The No. 1 seed Brockton Rox (31-23), which won the season series over Bristol, will face the lowest remaining seed, which could be the No. 6 seed Nashua Silver Knights (27-27). The Navigators and Silver Knights, and the Bravehearts and Suns are playing in elimination games Monday.
The Blues won seven of their final 10 regular season games to earn a first-round bye Monday and will travel on Wednesday for Game 2. On Thursday, the Blues will host Game 3, if necessary.
Barring any weather postponements, the championship series will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday, if necessary. The highest remaining seed will choose whether it wants to host Games 1 and 3 or Games 2 and 3.
