The Championship Game of the 2011 Little League Baseball Mid-Atlantic Region Tournament at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Leadership Training Center in Bristol, Conn. has been suspended by rain. Little League intends to complete a full six-inning game or reach the point of a regulation game (four innings, or three-and-half innings if home team is leading) when playing conditions improve.

After three complete innings, the Pennsylvania State Champion, Keystone (Clinton County) Little League and New Jersey State Champion Paramus (N.J.) Little League were scoreless when the game was suspended.

It was incorrectly reported on ESPN2 that the Pennsylvania State Champion, due the team’s 5-0 record, would automatically receive the Mid-Atlantic Region’s berth if the game was not able to be completed today.

The Little League International Tournament Committee has not yet considered that as an option, and at this time Little League International fully intends to play the game to its completion.

Little League International thanks all local league officials, families and friends of the Keystone Little League from Clinton County, Pa., and Paramus Little League for their patience and understanding.

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.7 million players and one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
