MITCHELL, S.D. – Due to the uncommon winter weather that has forced two weeks of postponements to games, the South Dakota High School Baseball Association unanimously voted to change its scheduling policy because of all the poor weather. Typically, each team must play everyone within their own division twice, usually home and away, and play each team in their connecting region once each. With the change last week, Class B teams will not be required to play the teams in the connecting region if it is necessary to cancel a date to make room for a divisional game that was postponed or has not been played. For Class A baseball, which includes Pierre and other larger towns in the state, the board the board unanimously voted that any team that is already scheduled to play a Class A opponent may make the game a doubleheader for the purposes of getting into close to 30 games. The SDHSBA also said Class A teams may not schedule a new contest.
