There is hope yet for a high school baseball season in Massachusetts.
On Monday, the board of directors of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association delivered some much-needed good news to the state’s athletes, agreeing unanimously to push the start date for spring seasons back to May 4, and concluding that an eight-week season, with tournaments, could be played, finishing no later than June 27 (June 28 rain date), if that start date is met.
That came five days after Gov. Charlie Baker ordered all schools in the state to remain closed until May 4.
The MIAA also determined Monday that, with a May 4 start date, the first games could be played a week later, on May 11. Teams could play 12 games, with a minimum of eight needed to qualify for tournament play.
