Fans of the Junior League World Series should note that the starting times for today’s games for August 16 have been changed, due to the rain in the Detroit region.

USA West (California) and USA Central (Illinois) will now begin play at 6 p.m., not 4 as previously scheduled. USA West and USA Central are both 2-1 in the USA Divisional Bracket, and the winner earns a berth in the USA Finals against USA Southwest (Texas) on Saturday, while the loser is eliminated.

The game between Australia and Mexico, each 2-1, is now scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Similar to the situation with USA West and USA Central, the winner of the Australia-Mexico game earns a berth opposite defending champion Chinese Taipei on Saturday in the International Finals, and the loser is eliminated.

If it continues to rain, look for more updates.
