The Class 4A and Class 3A site for the 2024 IHSAA State Baseball Tournament will be Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids, following approval by the board on Friday. The 5,300-seat home of the Cedar Rapids Kernels was selected through a summer bidding process.
The one-year agreement follows three seasons at Duane Banks Field in Iowa City for the larger school classes. When IHSAA and University of Iowa added a three-year agreement in 2022, potential renovations at Duane Banks Field made the extension year-to-year. Upgrades are scheduled to begin on the UI campus following the NCAA season in 2024.
Cedar Rapids last hosted the summer IHSAA State Baseball Tournament in 1974.
Per the 2022 facility extensions, Carroll will again host Class 2A and Class 1A in 2024. The tournament is scheduled for July 22-26, 2024.
