2023 High School Baseball
Baseball-TSSAA limits high schools to play a maximum of 30 games played, 4 tournaments (tournaments count as 3 games).
All high school baseball schedules are due to the MSCIAA Office by January 16th. It is the responsibility of the school to contact Memphis Parks for field availability, scheduling and fees. The school will be responsible for paying all fees associated with playing on Parks Fields. These fees will not be reimbursed.
Game Time Limits: Time limits must be agreed upon by both coaches at the plate with the umpire before the game begins. The time limit is not drop dead. No new inning will be started after the time limit expires. If coaches do not agree on a time limit, games will be played by NFHS rules: 7 innings. Run rules also need to be discussed prior to the game starting. Acceptable run rules are 15 run lead after 3 innings, and 10 run lead after 5 innings.
The MSCIAA minimum time limits are 1 hour 30 minutes for softball and 1 hour and 45 minutes for baseball when playing 1 game.
MSCIAA minimum time limits for varsity doubleheaders are 1 hour and 15 minutes for softball and 1 hour and 30 minutes for baseball. Doubleheaders should have no more than 30 minutes between games for officials’ payment for DH.
