No. In the Official Rules of Baseball rule 4.17 states:

"A game shall be forfeited to the opposing team when a team is unable or refuses to place nine players on the field."

This would depend on the rules your high school goes by. In many cases you can start a game with 8 players, but it would depend on the Associations Rules and Regulations
