High School ‘ball’ is a Go – if IGHSAU and IHSAA Approve

Des Moines, Iowa — Iowa governor Kim Reynolds has given the green light for high school baseball and softball to start on June first. Both seasons were in doubt due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The decision rests with the Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

(as said)”Effective June first, Iowa schools will be permitted to resume school-sponsored activities and learning. According to the appropriate public health precautions — this will include high school baseball and softball activities,” Reynolds says.

Reynolds says parents and athletes have been anxious to get playing again.

(as said)”High school athletics was the logical place to start the process of bringing athletics back in season. We are working closely with the Iowa High School Athletic Association and others to make this possible,” she says.

She says they are also looking to get other sports back too.
