2016 Softball Classification REVISED AND FINAL as of today.
Please be aware that the bats included on the 2016 Non-Approved Bats listing are illegal for use in the 2016 softball season, even though they contain the 2004 ASA approved stamp.

Upon recommendation from the IGHSAU Softball Advisory Committee and approval by the IGHSAU Board of Directors, 2016 regional final softball games in all classes (1A – 5A) will be played on the home field of the highest seeded team remaining of the two regional final teams. In order to secure the privilege to host, sites must have adequate lighting, and meet certain other minimum facility requirements. The Committee and Directors believe this is positive step that will increase excitement and attendance at these state qualifying games.
