Marfa is not playing this year. Not enough interest. And neither is Ft. Davis.

Im wondering, out of these schools that have baseball, how many have softball also.

I say we have enough teams now to have our own division!

Long travels for district play. Marfa will probably pick it back up when these JH kids are in HS.

I think a few others would play if their was a New 1A class but not enough to account for travel distances for districts.

Here is my next question...of the schools listed...what are the top 5 baseball programs???

I'm guessing Ira and Borden Co are in the top 5...????

May and Goldthwaite are in a play-in game in Comanche this afternoon to decide the second and third seedings in the upcoming playoffs. I was told this is the first time May has made the playoffs in baseball in.......ever!

There are a lot of schools that are six man SIZE that play as well. In just our district there is Graford, Gorman, Baird, and Lipan. Yeah, they don't play six man football (or any football for some of them), but they are of the right enrollment to be 1A (div II) for baseball. You add those in and we definitely have enough for our own division. Also, I know of at least one six man school that would play if there was a 1A only division, instead of having to play 2A (or what is currently 1A division I), and I imagine there will be several others.

I have heard that Eula is on the agenda for the June UIL meeting. They have a presentation setup that shows that baseball could be done at the 104.5 number and also showing what number it would take to split the divisions evenly. I don't know that number. Lets hope this is a step in the right direction.
