The first pitch for the American Legion Class AAA State Tournament today at Grant Complex has been pushed back 2 hours.

Thus the opening game between Newton and Wichita will start at 1 p.m., with the second game matching Ottawa and Garden City getting under way at 3:30.

Instead of the open time between the second and third games, the third game that matches Great Bend and Oskaloosa will start 30 minutes after the second game — probably about 6 p.m., with McPherson and Emporia playing what will be a late game at 8:30.

Hopefully the games will be at normal times on Thursday, with the first game starting at 11 a.m.
