THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - On Friday, the Thomasville baseball team learned their 2021 season had come to an end. Reports surfaced of the Bulldogs being disqualified from the state tournament due to a pitch count violation, something the GHSA has since confirmed on its website.

On Thursday night Thomasville punched their ticket to their first Final four since 1999, the Bulldogs defeated Callaway in a winner take all game three, fast forward 24 hours and the Bulldogs are out.

On the GHSA’s website, it shows Callaway will now travel to meet Jeff Davis in the final four.

In a statement to WCTV, Thomasville Athletic Director Chris Merritt said:

Thomasville High School was found in violation of the Georgia High School Association Pitch County Policy in their 6-0 victory over Callaway on Thursday. This violation deems Thomasville High School disqualified from GHSA State Playoffs. The Thomasville City Schools and Thomasville High School Leadership regret this unfortunate event and recognize that it does not reflect the hard work and passion these student athletes have put into this season.

The Bulldogs went 23-11 this season.
