Alabama High School Baseball

    Baseball has been played since the 1920s in Alabama high a victory over Selma. schools. But a statewide championship tournament did not begin until 1948.

    That first tournament saw Ramsay claim the state championship with a victory over Selma.

    Every school participated as a single classification until 1970 when the AHSAA approved two classifications. In 1974 they moved to three and finally to four in 1978.

    Today each April most every school in the state joins in with a chance to win a championship in one of the seven classifications in the AHSAA.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
