[6/8/2016] Summer Koshien: Semifinals to start an hour earlier

The Japan High School Baseball Federation announced today that the Semifinals for the 98th Summer Koshien will take place an hour earlier than usual. Game 1 will begin at 10:00 and Game 2 at 12:30.

The games were pushed up an hour to give players more time to rest before the Finals on the following day. The new games times will most likely stay the same for future tournaments.
