DALLAS (AP) – Last month, Richardson Lake Highlands High School in Texas beat another prep baseball team by more than 50 runs.

Highlands and Dallas Samuell play again Friday night.

The first game ended either 53-0 or 57-0, like the winning coach tallied it up. Either way, it was the most lopsided game in state history.

It has already led to a change in the mercy rules in the local school district. Games can now be called if there’s a 15-run margin after three innings.

Samuell coach Mike Pena says he just hopes his team plays better this time. He figures as long he has kids interested in baseball, he’s doing fine.
