BWC: Wednesday rained out at 2011 IBAF Baseball World Cup

World Cup 2011 Comments Off on BWC: Wednesday rained out at 2011 IBAF Baseball World Cup

Press Release International Baseball Federation, www.ibaf.org

Second Round Schedule remodeled for Thursday and Friday

Aguadulce, Panama. The second day of the second round at the 2011 IBAF Baseball World Cup turned into an unintended off day for most of the teams, as rain hindered play in three stadiums on Wednesday. Only the game between the Netherlands and Australia in Santiago was started.

It turned out to be tight contest between pitchers Dushan Ruzic (AUS) and Shairon Martis (NED), with each team scoring once in the second inning. But rain denied a completion, as the field became unplayable in the top of the seventh inning. After a lengthy delay the game was suspended and will be completed on Thursday.

The other three games, which were on the schedule were also rained out. In Chitre it started raining heavily one hour before game time in the fixture between Venezuela and USA. Technical Commissioners for the International Baseball Federation (IBAF) tried to save the day and moved the two games at Rico Cedeno to Remon Cantera in Aguadulce. But as soon as teams and officials arrived at the new site it started raining again and didn’t stop.

The schedule for the rest of the second round had to be remodeled. On Thursday and Friday six games are set for each day. Additionally the number of innings will be adjusted from nine innings to seven innings, as teams will play doubleheaders. The completion of Wednesday’s suspended game between the Netherlands and Australia will be an exception, and will be played over nine innings from the point play stopped in the top of the seventh inning.
