State B Baseball Tournament

May 28, 2015 11:30 am - May 30, 2015 7:30 pm

The Class B State Baseball Tournament will be held May 28, 29, 30, 2015 at Mandan’s Veteran’s Memorial Ballpark, with Lorell Jungling as manager. If inclement weather prevails, the tournament manager shall postpone the tournament as necessary. Tournament games will begin daily at 11:30 am with the 3rd game beginning at 4:30 pm.

The head coaches of the eight qualifying teams will use an electronic process to seed the top four teams for the state tournament.  An NDHSAA-approved designee will randomly draw the opponents for the top four seeded teams.

The quarterfinal pairings are:
    #2 seed vs. Second Random Draw – 11:30 am
    #3 seed vs. Third Random Draw – 35 minutes after
    #1 seed vs. First Random Draw – 4:30 pm
    #4 seed vs. Fourth Random Draw – 35 minutes after

Between games, if field conditions and time allows as determined by the manager, each team can have a 10-minute warm-up period on the playing field, but no batting practice will be allowed on the main diamond between games or at any time during the tournament.

All games including the consolation games are seven innings in length, except as governed by the note in connection with Rule 4-2-2 of the current National Federation Baseball Rules. This rule provides in all seven-inning games, the game shall be called after the completion of 4 1/2 innings if the team behind by 10 runs has batted.

Pitching regulations are as follows: An individual may pitch a maximum of 14 innings in any seven-day period. A player may pitch only 12 innings or make only three appearances as a pitcher in a one-day or a two or three consecutive day tournament. Each pitcher will have a full complement of innings for the state tournament providing there is a minimum of four days rest prior to the state tournament.

Team trophies will be awarded for places 1-7 and 19 individual awards per team.  Extra awards may be purchased through the NDHSAA office.
