FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 4, 2019

The 2019 Whitaker Bank/KHSAA Baseball and 2019 KHSAA Softball State Tournaments will be held this week in Lexington, with the state baseball tournament returning to Whitaker Bank Ballpark while the state softball tournament heads to the University of Kentucky’s John Cropp Stadium for the first time.

Tickets for each event are available for purchase online with links available on the homepage at KHSAA.org. Re-entry is not permitted at either event, however, as is customary with all KHSAA General Admission events, the stands will not be cleared following the conclusion of any single game (with the exception of the reserved seating areas behind the plate) and fans are free to stay within the stadium confines.

The Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament (June 5-8) begins Wednesday evening when Beechwood takes on Breckinridge County at 5:30 p.m., followed by Tates Creek versus Pleasure Ridge Park at 8:30 p.m. Quarterfinal action resumes Thursday evening with Rowan County taking on McCracken County at 5:30 p.m., followed by Hazard vs. Trinity (Lou.) at 8:30 p.m. The semifinals are slated for 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Friday evening, with the championship game set for 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.

The KHSAA State Softball Tournament (June 7-9) is scheduled to get underway Friday morning with the first of four quarterfinal games at 10 a.m. Central Hardin will face Pendleton County in the first game of the day, followed by Ashland Blazer vs. Warren East at 1 p.m., Madisonville-North Hopkins vs. Clay County at 4 p.m., and Male vs. Boyle County at 7 p.m. Saturday’s semifinals will be played at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m., with the championship game set for 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 9.

The semifinals and championship of each tournament will be webcast live at KHSAA.tv as part of the NFHS Network, which is a subscription based service.
