Softball, Baseball Tournament Pairings to be announced on IHSAAtv.org
For the first time, this year’s pairings for the upcoming softball and baseball state tournaments will be revealed during an evening webstream.
The sectional matchups for the softball tournament will be announced on Friday, April 28 and baseball will be one week later on Friday, May 5. Both programs will stream exclusively at IHSAAtv.org and begin at 7 pm ET / 6 pm CT.
Heath Shanahan, Director of Broadcast Operations and Executive Producer for IHSAAtv.org, will produce both programs.
“With the continuing evolution of IHSAAtv.org, we’re very excited in trying something new with respect to these two state tournament drawings which will also provide an opportunity for entire teams to view the programs together,” he said.
Greg Rakestraw of 107.5 FM & 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis and an announcer for the IHSAA Champions Network will host both shows.
Following their conclusions, both programs will be archived immediately on the On‐Demand tab at IHSAAtv.org and a formal news release will be posted to the IHSAA.org website.
