Rain has again forced changes to Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch International Tournament schedules.

Playoff contests delayed by rain at Canadian Open

Showcase games moved to Sunnyside Park, Futures remain at Softball City

Rain has again forced the schedule-makers at the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship to work overtime.

The wet weather has prompted tournament organizers to cancel consolation games in the Futures Select and Showcase Select divisions, with Showcase Select semifinals moved from 10:30 a.m. at Softball City to Sunnyside Park at 1:30 p.m. The change affects three locals teams, as the Fleetwood Force ’96 and Surrey Storm ’97 are to play in one semifinal, with the Surrey Storm ’96 and the Duncan Redhots meeting in the other. The final remains scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at Softball City’s Diamond 2.

In the Futures Select competition, semifinal games at 1 p.m. at Softball City will be delayed a half-hour. The Surrey Storm ’95 will play the Abbotsford Outlaws on Diamond 3, with the North Delta Sunfire and Ridge Meadows Rage on Diamond Four. The championship game is set for 6:30 p.m. on Diamond 2.

Schedules in the round robin stage of the Futures Gold, Showcase Gold and Women’s Elite will also be affected, with changes to be posted online at www.canadianopenfastpitch.com

Canada is forecasting showers for this afternoon and early evening, but no rain is scheduled for the rest of the week and sun is expected Friday through Monday.
