Bur seven other Monday afternoon contests were wiped out by steady rains in the morning and early afternoon.
The tournament committee met with franchise representatives and managers and decided to play seven-inning doubleheaders on Tuesday, as well as the regularly-scheduled night game involving Martella’s Pharmacy and Youngstown Creekside Crocodiles at 7 p.m.
The night games on Monday and Tuesday will still be nine-inning games.
The opening night parade also was moved to Tuesday night but won’t include players from the tournament teams.
