After qualifying for the College World Series for the first time in 1958, the BYU baseball team learns that they will not be able to compete, due to the university’s no-Sunday-play policy. In 1961, after BYU was again unable to compete, the NCAA created the “BYU rule,” which required tournaments to reschedule events to accommodate participating schools’ religious observances (courtesy L.
