[4/23/2016] Summer Koshien finals game to be pushed back an hour

The Japan High School Baseball Federation announced that the steering committee decided to push back the start of the finals game by an hour to 14:00 out of consideration for the Olympics. Assuming no rain outs, the finals game is scheduled to take place on the same day of the Rio Olympics’ closing ceremony (August 21).

The committee is also thinking about collecting donations for relief efforts in Kumamoto during the tournament.
