(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana High School Athletic Association has approved a rule change that allows girls to try out for baseball and other boys’ sports.
The measure was approved by the IHSAA board of directors by a 19-0 vote. The change stems from a lawsuit brought last fall on behalf of Bloomington South freshman Logan Young, who was suing on the basis that baseball and softball are not comparable sports.
The association had ruled in February that baseball and softball are not comparable sports and Monday's vote formalized that finding.
The new rule allows girls to try out for boys' teams in other sports if the school does not have a comparable girls sport.
