The Championship Game of the 2011 Little League Baseball Mid-Atlantic Region Tournament to be played Sunday, Aug, 14, at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Leadership Training Center in Bristol, Conn., has been moved to 11 a.m. The game will air live on ESPN2 at the re-scheduled time.

The game, originally scheduled for 6 p.m. Eastern U.S. time, has been moved to earlier in the day on Sunday because of an expected period of inclement weather in the New England area that has the potential of postponing the game for one day, or more.

In an attempt to ensure all teams’ pitchers are eligible, based on required rest periods, the Little League International Tournament Committee has decided to change the start time. Finishing the game on Sunday will allow the eventual Mid-Atlantic Region Champion to have its full complement of pitchers eligible for its first game in the 65th Little League Baseball World Series.

The Mid-Atlantic Region Champion is scheduled to play its first World Series game on Friday, Aug. 19, at 5 p.m. against the Great Lakes Region Champion, live on ESPN2.

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

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with more than 2.5 million players and one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
