Play ball!! After Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds said Wednesday (5/20) that schools will be permitted to have high school baseball and softball games beginning June 1, the governing bodies for boys and girls sports in Iowa have given the green light. Practices for baseball and softball will begin June 1 and games can start on June 15. Fans will be allowed to attend games, too. The softball and baseball seasons were originally set to begin the day after Memorial Day, but the Governor’s requirements on social distancing had prohibited high school sports until June 1. No word yet how schedules for the coming seasons will be affected.
