National high school baseball tournament canceled in the summer To the opening of the original tournament on July 4, 17:56
In response to the cancellation of national high school baseball in the summer due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the Aichi Prefectural High School Baseball Federation has established a policy to open its own tournament on July 4, the culmination of the third year.
On The 20th, the Japan Koyasen and others canceled the regional tournament as a preliminary round in accordance with the cancellation of national high school baseball in the summer, and it was up to Koyasen in various places to decide whether to hold their own tournaments in the future.
Under these conditions, The Koyasen, Aichi Prefecture, is making adjustments aiming to hold its own tournament in order to create an official match for the first year of the tournament, but it was found in interviews with the parties concerned that it had established a policy of opening on July 4 at the earliest.
In order to reduce the risk of infection due to the movement of players and other players, the tournament will initially play at a nearby stadium in each district, and then consider whether the winning team can compete for the championship.
In order not to interfere with academic scholastic work, the game will be held on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as a general rule, and we want to finish by early August.
In addition to putting together specific measures to prevent infection in the future, The Koyasen, Aichi Prefecture, will formally decide to hold the tournament at the Steering Committee next month, in cooperation with The Japan Koyasen.
In response to an interview with The Second Minister of The KoyaSen, Aichi Prefecture, Mr. Kaga Nobu, said, “I hope that the experience of playing baseball in this adversity will not only be a break for the third graders, but that they will grow greatly in the future.”
