State High School Baseball Tournaments Moving

June 11, 2021

For the first time since 2004, the Iowa High School Athletic Association’s summer baseball championships will be conducted at two separate sites with Carroll’s Merchants Park and the University of Iowa’s Duane Banks Field serving as hosts.

The schedule will have Class 2A and Class 1A in Carroll from July 26-29, and Class 4A and Class 3A in Iowa City from July 28-31.

Next month’s schedules and sites were approved by the Board of Control today. The one-year plans are pending formal approval by the City of Carroll and the University of Iowa.

Principal Park in Des Moines served as the state tournament venue from 2005 through last summer.
