[1/31/2019] 101st Summer Koshien Schedule Adjustment Plans

The steering committee for the 101st Summer Koshien met in Osaka on January 30 to discuss the schedule for the upcoming tournament.

  • Brackets will be selected on August 3. The tournament will begin on August 6 and end on August 21 (assuming no rain outs).
  • Organizers are planning to add another rest day to the tournament schedule for a total of two. Days of rest will be scheduled after the quarterfinals and semifinals. Three days of rain outs will cancel the rest day after the semifinals. Four or more rain outs will cancel both rest days.
  • To combat the summer heat, days with three games (day five and nine) will start ninety minutes earlier, from 9:30am to 8:00am. Semifinals will start an hour earlier, from 10:00am to 9:00am.
