WIAA Board Of Control Votes To Discontinue State Summer Baseball Tournament

The WIAA Board of Control has voted to discontinue the State Summer Baseball Tournament Series following the 2018 season.  The steady decline of schools offering baseball in the summer months led the Board to end the program at their March meeting in Madison last Friday. There are 50 programs sponsoring the sport this summer but early projections believe the number of sponsoring schools in the 2019-2020 season would decline to fewer than 30. The WIAA has conducted the State summer baseball tournament since 1965.
