WIAA to Discontinue Summer Baseball After 2018

By WIAA on April 04, 2018 state news Print

The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Board of Control voted to discontinue the State Summer Baseball Tournament Series following the 2018 season at its March meeting in Madison last Friday. 

Given the steady decline schools offering baseball in the summer, the Board voted to end the summer baseball program. The projected number of schools sponsoring summer baseball by the 2019-20 season would decline to fewer than 30. There are 50 programs sponsoring the sport in 2018. In its peak, the number of summer baseball programs reached 110 in 1990. The WIAA has conducted a State summer baseball tournament since 1965.
