KSHSAA Board of directors approves more games for baseball, softball
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Kansas State High School Activities Association on Wednesday approved a change to the status quo that’d been in place for nearly 60 years for high school baseball and softball in the state. With a vote of 42-17 in baseball and 48-11 in softball, moving forward, teams will be allowed to play 26 regular season games.
This is a jump from the maximum of 20 that’d been the rule since 1965, Kansas sports journalist Brent Maycock reported for the KSHSAA.
Previous efforts to expand Kansas high school baseball and softball seasons fell short, most recently in April when the board of directors voted 33-32 to keep the regular-season cap at 20 games.
