Depending on the state, for HS, if approved baseballs aren't provided, the game is not to be played.

We're going to see this thread a lot this season.

We need a pinned thread with a list of states and their position on NOCSAE baseballs. Here's a start (IIRC):

"Don't play" states:

MI, OH, PA

"Play and report" states:

NJ, TX

Feel free to cut and paste to add your state.

I'm not sure if this covers the rest of the state, but California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section, CIF SS, has stated the game is not to be played if the legal baseballs are not provided for the game.  If they don't have them, then give the home team time, 1/2 hour,  to get legal baseballs.  If they can't leave.  And teams have to pay the umpires.  I would imagine it's the same for the rest of the state.

Had discussions with a few coaches and catchers in games I worked yesterday and they are all aware about the catcher's gear and the NOCSAE stamp.  2 catchers have purchased the NOCSAE shirts to wear underneath the uniforms.

Tennessee is a play and report state.
