    I played high school baseball in Tennessee. I have always thought a change to a summer schedule would be beneficial. A lot of northern states do this. My wife is from Iowa, high school baseball is played in late may to July months there. This would hurt summer travel teams but, only if the travel teams played on weekends and school ball during the week. It's very difficult playing a high school schedule starting in March. Weather is so unpredictable. I honestly feel like a move to summer months would be way more beneficial.

    I would say this would kill High School Baseball. The top players would play with their Summer Showcase teams and not with their high school. It would be a very bad decision to play both especially for a kid that pitches because he would pitch during the week, then the weekend and turn around and pitch again right after the weekend.

    Nice idea, but it's a bad idea. I thought it is a great idea to get all the sporting events from the start of the school year, to the end with spring fling happening before Memorial Day. I think the sports calendar should stay as it is. Yes, they're going to be days a baseball game is going to be played in 45 degree weather and will be at 40 degrees when the final out happens. Just like there are football games while the temperatures are in the low 90's in August and early September. Yes, the majority of the state have seen some sort of snow today, but to the teams that tarped their field, will have the opportunity to play on Monday, while the ones that didn't, would have to wait and see.

     

    Why change it?

    You would mess with football and summer league basketball which is really allowed to go year around unlike spring sports that can't start until the middle of February officially. Heaven forbid you mess with the TSSAA money pots!

    With Tennessee weather, it may be warmer in February than March. No good solution.
