WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (WPRI) — After days of festivities and fanfare, the boys from Barrington Little League will have to wait another day for their first appearance in the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The team – which is representing the New England Region – was scheduled to take the field at 3 p.m. against Virginia – which is playing for the Southeast.
The skies opened up ahead of the game and a Severe Weather Warning was issued for the area. Eventually, organizers were forced to postpone the rest of the day’s games for Friday.
Barrington is now scheduled to play at 10 a.m. If they win, they’ll play next on Sunday and if they lose, their next game will be on Saturday.
Before the game, the team took part in an opening day ceremony then had batting practice to fine-tune their swings. They also participated in the Grand Slam Parade along with other World Series teams Wednesday night.
