(Boone, IA) -- This summer's state baseball tourney will NOT be in Des Moines. The Iowa High School Athletic Association says games will be in Carroll and Iowa City. Principal Park in Des Moines has hosted the tourney since 2005. This year, there are Minor League Baseball scheduling conflicts.
The state baseball tourney is July 26-31.
The 2021 IHSAA State Baseball Tournament is scheduled for July 26-31, with Class 2A and Class 1A in Carroll from July 26-29, at Merchants Park, and Class 4A and Class 3A in Iowa City from July 28-31, at Duane Banks Field.
“The last 15 months have been filled with changes and constantly-evolving plans, and this tournament is no exception,” IHSAA executive director Tom Keating said. “We’re excited to have two high-quality hosts in Carroll and the University of Iowa where our student-athletes can make memories and compete for state championships.”
