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.
Fans were permitted to attend the game at Assumption High School in Davenport.

2020 World Series: Where the Dodgers and Rays played high school baseball - HIGHSCORE
2020 World Series: Where the Dodgers and Rays played high school baseball
When the first pitch is thrown in Game 1 of the World Series, it will mark a 2020 milestone — actually making it to the Fall Classic in a coronavirus-affected season. Through fanless games, COVID delays and what's proven to be a thrilling postseason to this point, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays have overcome a lot to be playing for the sport's ultimate prize.

The best-of-seven set begins Tuesday at Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers, in the first neutral site World Series.

The Dodgers seek their seventh World Series title, the first since 1988, while the Rays hope to hoist the trophy for the first time in their second Fall Classic appearance.

MaxPreps is breaking down the 28-man rosters for each club, plus managers, and where they played high school baseball. In an increasingly global game, we note where the international players grew up.

Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers' Game 1 starter, prepped at Highland Park in Dallas and played football for the Scots along with Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Facing off against Dodgers' ace is Tyler Glasnow, who was playing high school baseball in 2008 at Hart (Newhall, Calif.) as Kershaw broke into the majors.
Tyler Glasnow played high school baseball for Hart (Calif.) and will be the starter for the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the World Series.

High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships
It's been 34 seasons since Tucson won an Arizona state baseball championship, and the Badgers have won only won four since 1957. Yet, Tucson has heads MaxPreps list of teams with the most high school baseball championships.

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.
