The high school baseball season in Arizona has finally come to an end. Arizona features seven different classifications, typically based on school sizes.

The 2008 Arizona state baseball champions are: Valley Union Blue Devils, 1A; Bisbee Pumas, 2A; Safford Bullgogs, 3A; Mingus Marauders, 4AII; Chaparral Firebirds, 4A, I;

Horizon Huskies, 5A, II; and Hamilton Huskies, 5A, I.

As an umpire, I had the good fortune of seeing many of these teams throughout the season, as well as in both the regional and state tournaments. Lots of well-played baseball, for sure.

I think the Arizona Interscholastic Association does a tremendous job of instilling its "Victory With Honor" approach into the heads and hearts of coaches statewide. Most of the coaches, especially the good ones with successful programs, in-turn, teach their student athletes how to compete with class - win or lose.

Some would say a high school ball field is essentially an outdoor classroom.

Time for summer ball!
