High school baseball: 109-0 blowout tops list of highest scoring games
The highest scoring baseball game in high school history was played April 25, 1928 when Atlantic (Iowa) defeated nearby Griswold (Iowa), 109-0, but that's only part of the story. The rest of the story involves a girl, money and bad blood that produced an avalanche of national records and possibly the most lopsided score in all of sports history.

The story begins on March 29, 1928, in Griswold, a small town in eastern Iowa, when baseball coach Phil Morrison decided to go with Alice Buckman as his starting right fielder. The selection of Buckman, "a 15-year old red-headed girl," over nine other boys caused quite a stir across the entire country as the Associated Press carried the story and it appeared in newspapers from the Los Angeles Times to the New York Daily News and all points in between.

Griswold games then became a madhouse with fans coming from far and wide to watch Buckman play. She didn't disappoint, either, getting several hits and fielding her position flawlessly aside from one dropped, wind-blown popup.

Griswold games became a main attraction. Movie crews filmed Buckman's every move. Newspaper articles on Griswold games focused only on Buckman's exploits. Opinion columns across the country praised Buckman's accomplishment. The gate at the first Griswold baseball home game was $75 — that's nearly $1,200 in earnings today. She was asked to throw out the first pitch at a minor league ballgame and she was given a trophy for her "Triumph" at the Elliott Track Relays. She was even given a full-page feature in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

At Atlantic, coach P.G. Russell sought to get a game with Griswold on his home field. In an agreement with Morrison, the two teams would play in Atlantic on April 25 and split the gate 50-50 (one report says the agreement was made the previous fall). Russell anticipated a big crowd and even set up an extra train to run from Griswold to Atlantic to handle the overflow crowd.

Atlantic, it should be noted, was an outstanding team. Undefeated to start the season, Atlantic featured a pitcher, Don King, who had earned all-state honors in the winter while leading Atlantic to a third-place finish in the state basketball tournament. King would play heavily in the matchup against Griswold.

During the week prior to the game, Russell accused Morrison of reneging on their contract, suggesting that Morrison wanted a 60-40 split for Griswold instead of the agreed upon 50-50 cut. Morrison denied the switch, and that's when things began to go downhill. Cries of "commercialization" appeared in newspapers from as far as New Jersey with Morrison denying he was trying to make money off his now nationally famous right fielder.

Morrison then announced the day before the game that Buckman would be unable to play due to an injured finger sustained against Cumberland the game before. Suggesting that he wanted his team to focus on a game the following day against Adair, Morrison pulled his starters, including Buckman, and sent his freshman squad to take on Atlantic.

The results were not pretty. While Atlantic scored only four runs in the first inning, it put 30 across in the second. It scored 12 runs in the third, six runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings, 27 in the seventh and 18 in the eighth.

According to Steve Baier, a Cass County Supervisor who has done research on the game, the game was played at Sunnyside Park, which did not have a fence. A rope was utilized to hold back the fans, who formed the outer boundary of the field.

"Griswold's usual left fielder, Johnny Gustin, threw every pitch," said Baier in an e-mail to MaxPreps. "By the eighth inning, Griswold had only seven players on the field. The (nine-inning) game ended in the eighth due to darkness."

The game was an offensive bonanza for Atlantic. Besides bashing out 92 base hits, Atlantic had 16 home runs, five by Ronald Rapp, 26 doubles and seven triples. Atlantic also blazed on the base paths, swiping 113 bases. Griswold, meanwhile, committed 22 errors.

King was the feature player of the game, however. Besides throwing a no-hitter and striking out 16 (other reports say 13), he also led the Atlantic offensive with 15 hits, two home runs, two doubles and 19 stolen bases.

Obviously the game provided a plethora of national records, but only a handful of them are recognized by the National Federation of High Schools Record Book and the Iowa High Schools Athletic Association record book produced by Bud Legg. While most of the team records are listed, none of the individual marks have found their way into the record books.

Chris Boone of the National Federation reported in an e-mail to MaxPreps that the absence of individual records is likely due to the absence of any boxscores to prove the record-breaking marks.

MaxPreps has included two box scores for the game with this story (pictured below). One is from April 27 in the Des Moines Register and includes all of the stolen base and extra base hit totals, but does not including run totals. An accompanying box score from the April 26 Atlantic News Telegraph shows the run totals, but does not include extra base hits.

Some of the statistics were never reported. Game reports do not list any of the players, other than King, who hit doubles. RBI totals are also not available along with any reports of players who might have scored multiple runs or had multiple hits in an inning.

The two teams met later in the season and the score proved to be much closer. With Griswold's starters, including Buckman, on the field, Atlantic posted a 2-1 win.

High school baseball: Top 10 MLB Draft prospects - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Top 10 MLB Draft prospects
The Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft has been a June fixture for 55 years, since it was first held in 1965. However due to COVID-19, Major League Baseball has moved the three-day selection process to July 11, 12 and 13. The high school baseball season is expected to last, in some states, until the third or fourth week of June.

MaxPreps has identified the Top 10 members of the Class of 2021 who figure to be chosen on the draft's first day. Based on mock drafts and rankings by recruiting services like Prep Baseball Report and Perfect Game, the Class of 2021 is particularly strong at shortstop with three expected to go among the top three high school players chosen. At least three pitchers are also among the top 10, however a high school player is not expected to be chosen with the No. 1 overall pick.

Marcelo Mayer, Eastlake
Top 10 high school MLB Draft prospects for 2021

Jordan Lawler, Dallas Jesuit (Dallas), SS
All signs point to Lawler, a five-tool shortstop, as the first high school player chosen in the draft. Along with the potential to develop into a 15-20 home runs a year slugger, Lawler also has tremendous speed and the ability to stick as a shortstop at the professional level. After a fast start to the 2021 season, Lawler has slowed to a .303 batting average with 13 runs, six RBI and five doubles.

Marcelo Mayer, Eastlake (Chula Vista, Calif.), SS
Like Lawler, Mayer is seen as a player who has a chance to stick at shortstop in the Bigs. Scouts regard Mayer as the best pure hitter in the draft, however, he's also a superior defensive player. The combination of hitting and fielding could push Mayer ahead of Lawler in the draft.

Kahlil Watson, Wake Forest (N.C.), SS
Yet another high school shortstop who has the defensive skills necessary to continue playing the position at the next level, Watson came on strong during the summer. Watson batted just .235 during a five-game season last year, but as a sophomore he hit .578 with 12 doubles and six home runs. Watson is likely to go somewhere in the middle of the first round and could be the fourth or fifth high school player selected.

Harry Ford, North Cobb (Kennesaw, Ga.), C
The highest-rated high school catcher, there are mixed results on whether Ford will go in the first round or not. However, no other high school catcher has been tabbed to go ahead of Ford. He's one of the quickest and most athletic high school catchers in the draft, which leads to the possibility that Ford could move to the field at some point. He's noted for his bat speed and he already has three home runs and two triples in 2021 while batting .290 with 14 RBI in 11 games.

Brady House, Winder-Barrow (Winder, Ga.), 3B
A shortstop for much of his high school career, House likely will end up at third base. He has one of the top bats in the draft. He's shown that early in the season for the Bulldogs, batting .542 with 17 runs scored, three doubles and three home runs.

Ben Montgomery, Red Land (Lewisberry, Pa.), OF
Montgomery could be the top high school outfielder in the draft thanks to a strong arm and ability to hit for power. He hasn't seen any action against high school competition since the 2019 season. Scouts see Montgomery going toward the end of the first round of the draft.

Chase Petty, Mainland Regional (Linwood, N.J.), P
Perry caught everyone's attention when he hit 100 mph over the summer. A possible end-of-first-round pick, Petty also reportedly has an above average slider. Low projection could sour some teams allowing Petty to drop out of the first round.

Jackson Jobe, Heritage Hall (Oklahoma City, Okla.), P
A hitting and fielding prospect prior the 2020 summer season, Jobe has developed into one of the top pitching prospects in the draft. With a fastball that hits 96 mph, Jobe also has a deadly curve. He had eight strikeouts in his first four innings pitched this season.

Andrew Painter, Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), P
Painter could be the first high school pitcher taken in the draft and he's expected to be the third or fourth overall high school player selected. At 6-foot-7, he's got the mid-90s fastball, but he is also adept at three other pitches. He has 27 strikeouts in 11 innings pitched this season.

James Woods, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.), OF
Teams looking for powerhitting outfielders will likely look long and hard at Woods. Along with Montgomery, he's among the top prep outfielders in the draft. He has two home runs this season in IMG's 10 games. He could go toward the end of the first round.

See the view from above via Google Earth.

Athens (The Plains, Ohio) didn't waste any time in honoring its greatest athlete. It named the school's football stadium after Joe Burrow before he even took a professional snap from center.

According to Sports Illustrated, the Athens School District decided to rename the stadium after Burrow's heartfelt Heisman Trophy acceptance speech in which he named the school district.

Burrow's star continued to rise following the renaming as he led LSU to the national championship in January and was selected No. 1 in the NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals in April.

Joe Burrow Stadium is one of 10 stadiums and football fields featured in our Google Earth series, which takes a new view of gridirons named after NFL players. See the full list below.

Joe Burrow Stadium: The stadium is where Burrow threw for 11,416 yards in a career in which he earned all-state honors.
Tony Romo Field: The latest field to be renamed at Burlington (Wis.), Tony Romo Field is located at Don Dalton Stadium. Dalton was Romo's coach at Burlington during the 1996 and 1997 seasons.
Joe Montana Stadium: Before leading the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl championships, Montana was an all-state quarterback at Ringgold (Monongahela, Pa.).
John Elway Stadium: Elway was an All-American during his final two seasons at Granada Hills Charter (Granada Hills, Calif.) after transferring from Washington. The stadium seats 4,000 people and is located in the San Fernando Valley.
Emmitt Smith Field: The NFL's all-time leading rusher got his start at Escambia (Pensacola, Fla.), where he rushed for 8,804 yards and was named All-American.
Ronnie Lott Stadium: A native of New Mexico, Lott moved to Rialto, Calif., at a young age and attended Eisenhower. The school renamed the stadium in honor of the Hall of Famer safety in 2009.
Walter Payton Field: While Walter Payton College Prep High School can be found in Chicago, where he played his entire NFL career, Walter Payton Field is found at his high school alma mater in Columbia (Miss.).
Tony Dorsett Stadium: The all-time leading rusher in NCAA history by the time he finished his college career at Pitt, Dorsett began his career at Hopewell (Aliquippa, Pa.), where he was one of the top recruits in the country in 1973.
Brian Piccolo Memorial Stadium: While many NFL players have come from St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), the stadium is named after a former Raider who was the subject of Emmy-winning movie "Brian's Song." Piccolo played for the Chicago Bears and died from cancer in 1970. Actor James Caan played the role of Piccolo in the 1971 TV movie.
Brady Family Stadium: The stadium at Serra (San Mateo, Calif.) is named not just for NFL quarterback Tom Brady, but for his family, as Brady requested. The stadium was renamed for the Brady family in 2012.

High school volleyball rankings: In search of sixth consecutive state title, Nebraska's Skutt Catholic headlines preseason MaxPreps Top 25
While the 2020 high school volleyball season might look different on a national level, one thing remains: You've got to win the matches in front of you. More than two-thirds of the states are pushing forward with fall sports, though some have a delayed calendar, but the national landscape will nonetheless look different.

California opted for a spring volleyball schedule, while some of the national tournaments were either canceled or rebooted in a different format. Michigan, with several Top 25-worthy teams is still trying to figure out if it's pushing back or moving forward.

Still, there's a ton of individual talent already on the court and equal number of teams capable of putting together state and perhaps national title runs.

We've included teams that have started playing or will start in September. Coaches can play their part in formulating accurate rankings by updating schedules and scores via MaxPreps.

Bryce McGowens named 2020-21 HIGHSCORE South Carolina High School Basketball Player of the Year - HIGHSCORE
Bryce McGowens named 2020-21 MaxPreps South Carolina High School Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-2021 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Bryce McGowens of Legacy Early College (Greenville) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps South Carolina High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-6, 175-pound senior helped the Lions go 14-7 against a challenging national schedule.

McGowens averaged 21.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists per contest this season. He was the leading scorer at the St. James NIBC Invitational, posting 20.9 points per contest in seven appearances at the loaded event.

After spending his first three years at Wren (Piedmont), McGowens transferred to Legacy Early College prior to his senior season. He finished his four-year high school career with over 2,300 points.

Signed with Nebraska, McGowens is regarded as the No. 21 prospect in the Class of 2021 overall according to 247Sports. Florida, Florida State, Maryland and Oregon were among the other college basketball programs to extend offers.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which is scheduled to be released April 13.
