3-2 in one of the first of 97 games scheduled on the opening day of the baseball season in Iowa and MaxPreps photographer Mandy McGlothlin was on hand for the action.
Monday's contests mark the first games since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered many state basketball tournaments and spring sports schedules. Fans in Iowa, and no doubt across the land, can rejoice
at the return of high school athletics.
Iowa, which plays a summer baseball season that normally starts in late May, is the first state to resume athletic competition at the high school level since the coronavirus shut down all high school play in mid-March. At least a hundred games are scheduled each day throughout the state for the coming week with most teams playing doubleheaders.
The regular season is going to be a short one with Iowa expected to begin postseason play on July 9 at the 1A level, July 11 for Class 2A and July 17 for Class 4A and 3A. State championship games are scheduled for Aug. 1.
