TSSAA Lifts Baseball Probations
The probations placed on Elizabethton and Unicoi County High Schools for their roles in what the TSSAA called an unsportsmanlike incident at a district playoff baseball game have been reduced or eliminated, the board said Monday. The one-year probation placed on Unicoi County has been removed entirely, while the two-year probation placed on Elizabethton has been cut in half. An on field incident took place on May 6th between the Blue Devils and Cyclones at Johnson City’s TVA Credit Union Ballpark. The two teams were unable to finish their district playoff baseball game after both dugouts cleared. The TSSAA ruled later, that both teams would not be allowed to complete their seasons.
