The Badgers won their first state title in 1912, but the greatest stretch of sustained excellence for Tucson came between 1939 and 1956. During that 18-year period, Tucson won 15 state crowns, including eight in a row from 1939 to 1946. The greatest Tucson team, however, might be the 1972 team that went 25-0. Tucson has rebounded to appear in the Class 5A state finals in 2018 and 2019, finishing as the runner-up each time.
Woodrow Wilson (Washington, D.C.) is closing in on Tucson and might have tied the Badgers by now if not for COVID. Wilson has won every DCIAA championship since 1993 and it would have been the favorite in 2020 and 2021. Wilson plays in an association with just 15 schools.
Asher (Okla.) is one of three schools tied with 22 state championships. That total is actually a bit misleading since Asher has won a total of 45 baseball championships. However only 22 of them have come in the spring. With no football program, Asher also plays baseball in the fall and has racked up 23 championships during that season as well.
Other teams with 22 championships include Bishop Hendricken (Warwick, R.I.) and Jackson Prep (Miss.).
The championships listed are based on information found on state association websites. Not all state websites had complete lists of past champions. MaxPreps also included independent and private school championships, including TAPPS in Texas, the MAIS in Mississippi and the NCISAA in North Carolina.
Past champion lists were unavailable for AISA in Alabama, the SCISA in South Carolina and the VISAA in Virginia. California is not included because it does not hold state championships in baseball (although a few championships seasons were held in the 1920s.). The Inter-AC in Pennsylvania is also not included, although Penn Charter holds the record there with 46 championships dating back to the late 1800s.

Sarah Hollenbeck of WFTS Tampa Bay reports that Steinbrenner's varsity team was placed in quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure. The Warriors had the option to forfeit or call up the junior varsity squad en masse to face Palm Harbor University.
Steinbrenner (16-7) elected to give it a go with the JV. The Warriors lost the first set 20-25, rallied to win the second 25-22 then fell again in the third 23-25. With its backs against the wall, the Tampa-area school prevailed 25-22 and 15-13 in the final two sets. Here's the dramatic final sequence:
Thanks to the efforts of the late replacements, Steinbrenner enters the Class 7A state tournament as the top seed from District 13 and is scheduled to face Sickles (Tampa) next Friday. According to Hollenbeck, the varsity team is expected to be available for that contest.

Palm Harbor University also advances and will meet Plant on Wednesday. There is an outside shot the two teams could meet again in the regional semifinals.
Hot on the heels of the Tigers is Madison Central. Led by All-American candidate Braden Montgomery, the Mississippi squad is undefeated at 15-0 and comes in at No. 3.
