The 2009 MHSAA District 12-1 Baseball and Softball Playoffs will feature 5 of the most competitive teams from Southeast Michigan in a single-elimination tournament culminating with the District Championship on Saturday, May 30th.  Saline High School will host the District Playoffs which will include the following schools: Ann Arbor-Huron, Ann-Arbor Pioneer, Dexter, Ypsilanti, and Saline.  The District Champion will move on to face the winner of District 9 (Kalamazoo Central District) in the Region 3 semi-finals at Holt High School on June 6th.  “Saline Athletics has always been on the cutting edge of interscholastic athletics, and joining with Pointstreak is another privilege that shows that we are committed to being a world class athletic department,”, said Rob White, Athletic Director, Saline High School.

About the MHSAA:

A private, non-profit corporation, the MHSAA receives no tax dollars from the state of Michigan or the federal government. Its membership, made up of public, private and parochial schools, pay no membership dues or tournament entry fees — the only one of two such associations nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament entry fees from schools.

Through their boards of education, member schools voluntarily join the MHSAA each and every year, vowing by formal resolution to abide by and enforce common rules for educational athletics. Membership is optional: schools may conduct a complete program of interscholastic athletics and may participate against MHSAA member schools in regular-season competition without joining the MHSAA. 

The opportunities for athletic participation for Michigan secondary schools has grown from the original program of football, basketball, track and baseball for boys to a total of 28 sport activities in which tournaments for boys and girls are organized and conducted by the MHSAA. If one considers the breakdown of the 28 sports into categories of male, female, classes and divisions by enrollment, and Upper and Lower Peninsula, there is a total of 120 separate tournaments in which schools vie for a championship trophy. Nearly 300,000 young men and women take part in these activities each year.
