The American Legion District 12 Conference Baseball Tournament was pushed back one day, after rain and severe storms postponed Wednesday night's first round games. Those games are being played Thursday, with the contests that were originally scheduled for Thursday to take place on Friday.
Post 74 from Albemarle will get one extra day to prepare for its opening game. The squad will face either Louisa or Massaponax on Friday night at 7:00. The action will take place at Albemarle High School.
The Albemarle team won the regular season title for the District 12 Conference on the season's final day, this past Saturday, with a walk-off 4-3 win over King George Post 89. By winning the regular season championship, Post 74 earns the right to host all its playoff games in the conference playoffs. Albemarle finished the regular season with a conference mark of 15-3, 21-4 overall.
