Minor softball postponed

ESCANABA – The opening day of the Little League softball minor (age 9-10) state tournament at Lemerand Park was postponed Friday due to thunderstorms and pending rain in the area.

No games were played and the opening ceremonies were not held.

District 10 Chairman Don Howes said Friday’s schedule will be played today, with plans Sunday to have all 16 teams play a doubleheader, combining Saturday and Sunday’s original schedules.

The single elimination quarterfinal bracket will go on as scheduled, beginning Monday, barring any further changes due to weather.

Kingsford faces Taylor Area at 4 p.m. (Central time) today.
