CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – The River States Conference Baseball Tournament was rained out Friday, May 5, the scheduled first day of the six-team double-elimination tournament being held at VA Memorial Stadium in Chillicothe, Ohio.
The tournament will pick up Saturday, May 6 with the games that were scheduled for Friday. None of three scheduled games from Friday were started or played.

There will be three more games on Sunday with the same start times of 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Monday's schedule follows the same pattern, and the championship round begins Tuesday at 11 a.m. with only two teams left at that point.
