Mid-South Regional delayed Thursday, moving to John Ryan Stadium
Thursday’s second day of action in the American Legion Mid-South Regional will have new game times and a new location.
Because of the morning-long rains plummeting the metro area, the four-game slate, originally scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., has been delayed until 10:45 a.m. and will now be played on the all-turf surface of John Ryan Stadium in Metairie.
The first two games of the day are elimination games, including Retif Oil – a 7-2 loser to Ada, Oklahoma, on Wednesday night – against the Mississippi state champs in the second game of the day. The two winner’s bracket games will follow, including the Pedal Valves Cardinals – which won its opener by the 10-run rule on Wednesday – against the Arkansas state champs in game three.
The updated tournament schedule is as follows:
|Wednesday’s Games (at Kirsch-Rooney)|
