Following further discussion and feedback from all schools involved, the Class 4A state baseball tournament will begin play on Tuesday.

This change follows an earlier announcement of delaying the tournament from Monday to Friday due to the field at All-Star Park being left unplayable from a rainstrom overnight on Sunday.

However, following communication with all schools, the tournament instead will move to Tuesday and Wednesday for its first two days, with sites at All-Star Park and Metro State.

The tournament will conclude next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Sites are to be determined.

The field at All-Star Park in Lakewood, one of the host sites for the 4A event, was hit by rain on Sunday night, and water leaked under the tarp. It left the field unplayable, according to CHSAA assistant commissioner Bert Borgmann.

The 4A bracket has been updated.
