could fix high school baseballs The UILs policy committee is pushing a new rale that would make coaches flip a coin to determine whether baseball playoff games will be a winner takesall or a bestofthree series AS it is teams play a three ThOfllflS game series only if both coach GodleV es agree on it If theres no Muuiey agreement the singlegame for mat is mandatory The new proposal which 1 will be put before the UILs full Legislative Council and the State Board of Education is good news It would help fix a tactic thats becoming all too familiar in high school baseball Fpr years the onegameorseries debate has divided high school coaches Some argue the mandatory singlegame format tends to favor squads that have a dominant pitcher The logic follows that a phenom at the mound can carry a modestly talented team far into the playoffs Give your top gun a 10 lead and hell give you a win The scenario is not uncommon especially in the lower classifications where teams have been known to ride a strongarmed ace on a single game road all the way through the post season A mandatory single game tends to penalize the teams with more pitching depth This past season for example Canyon High School baseball coach Ralph Behrend used the rule to his advantage He opted for a singlegame playoff against Boerne last month He knew the Greyhounds had two of the best pitchers in he area The Cougars had an ace in Reagan George however an injured Jerry Van Nqy tilted the scales toward Boerne Behrend made the smart move in going for a winnertakeall showdown The No 5 ranked Greyhounds narrowly escaped with a win They no doubt would have preferred knowing they had another shot if they were to lose Game 1 A coin toss makes it at least a possibility Other coaches prefer the threegame format for a different reason New Braunfels High School baseball coach Neal Miller believes giving kids an extra game has its merits Last year in the playoffs the Unicorns dropped their opener to Boerne 70 but came back the next day to make it interesting In the process NBHS outfielder Jeff Juarez hit two home runs and earned himself an invitation to tryouts from college scouts who happened to be watching that second game Miller likes to let the kids get as much playoff experience and college exposure as they can The counter side is that a series can become complicated by bad weather and travel expenses For baseball fans who want to make the game more than a oneday strikeout clinic by future minor league and collegebound pitchers it seems a small price to pay A balanced and tal ented team with solid pitching fielding and hit ting is equalized by a Division I pitching prospect His supporting cast can be mediocre if hes not giving up hits For the fans its a lot like the big servers in tennis who rely on aces and leave us no opportunity to watch the volleys and baseline game Whether the latest proposal passes is a differ ent question Some folks say the UIL will proba i bly stay with the status quo If so theyd be miss ing a chance to make a needed change Thomas Godley is sports editor for the aldZeitung Sports briefs I DENVER AP Colorado Rockies pitcher Bill
