Rain postpones Babe Ruth, Little League tourneys a day

 

A Babe Ruth championship game and the next round of Little League district all-star play all was rained out by a rare June rainstorm on Tuesday, with everything postponed to Wednesday barring further rain delays.

Palo Alto received a reported half-inch of rain while more fell further up the Peninsula.

The Palo Alto Babe Ruth city playoff finale between unbeaten Menlo Chevron and once-beaten B&B Builders was canceled. The makeup game at Baylands Athletic Center is set for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m., with a challenge game (if necessary) following at 8 p.m.

The three major District 52 all-star tournaments -- for 11-12s, 10-11s and 9-10s -- all were rained out.

The 11-12 tournament at Middlefield Ballpark will resume on Wednesday with Tuesday's regularly scheduled games. The ballpark had standing water on the field late Tuesday.

The 10-11 tournament at Marina Field at Belmont-Redwood Shores also was washed out, as was the 9-10 tourney at Lakeshore Park in San Mateo.
