shortened 2020 Iowa high school baseball season moves to Principal Park in Des Moines for its final week as 32 teams compete for four state championships.

Coaches seeded the fields in each class after substate finals, with Martensdale-St. Marys (1A), Van Meter (2A), Sergeant Bluff-Luton (3A) and Johnston (4A) receiving the top seeds. All but SBL (No. 2) were ranked No. 1 in the final regular season coaches poll. Class 3A No. 1 Davenport Assumption was upset 12-3 by Clear Creek Amana in the substate finals.

The defending champions are back in three classes: Mason City Newman (1A), Van Meter (2A) and Urbandale (4A). Class 3A will have a new winner after fifth-ranked Cedar Rapids Xavier was knocked off by eventual state qualifier Benton Community in the substate semifinals.

The tournament begins with Class 1A quarterfinals Friday, with the state championship games in each class set for next Saturday.
