This might not be the biggest blowout in high school baseball history. But it's bad. It's real bad. On Tuesday in Dallas, Lake Highlands beat Samuell by a score of...a score of...well, shucks, everyone lost track after Lake Highlands put up 50 and the game was called by the mercy rule in the fifth.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Lake Highlands baseball coach Jay Higgins said it was a 57-0 win.
Samuell coach Mike Peña said he thought it was 53-0, which was what the scoreboard read.
A Web site for Lake Highlands baseball has a picture of the scoreboard reading 53-0, but said the final score was actually 54-0.
Samuell didn't even have a hit, and Lake Highlands went 44 for 68, according to the team's trusty website. Who knows how ghastly this would have been over nine innings?
By comparison: In 1928 in Iowa, Atlantic beat Griswold 109-0, according to the National High School Sports Record Book.
