(TAYLOR, Mich.) - Junior League World Series tournament officials say Bedford 13 & 14-year old All-Stars will play today at 2:45 p.m.

Monday's massive thunderstorms forced postponements of three of the four games and forced Junior League World Series officials to issue a revised schedule.

Indiana's game against Tennessee was rained out and has been moved to 2:45 p.m., today. It's a vital game for the Bedford 13 & 14-year old All-Stars after dropping a 3-2 decision to Louisiana Sunday.

The game will be broadcast live on 1340 AM WBIW as well as Super Oldies 105.5 FM with Steven Gillespie on for the call. You will also be able to listen live right here on WBIW.com.

We encourage you to spread the word, tune in and cheer the team on to a championship.

The other Tuesday games pitted Chinese Taipei against Czech Republic at 9 a.m., with Canada and Puerto Rico facing off at noon, Curacao meeting Canada at 5:30 p.m., and Tennessee dueling Louisiana at 8:15 p.m..

In the only contest played Monday, Louisiana improved to 2-0 with a 5-0 victory over New York. Tournament officials faced steady rain until about 2:30 p.m., when they removed the tarp and were able to get the field ready for New York-Louisiana game, but shortly after that game concluded a huge thunderstorm rolled in and ended any hope of continuing play.

The new schedule for Wednesday has Puerto Rico facing Chinese Taipei at 9 a.m.; Arizona against New York at noon; Puerto Rico meeting Czech Republic at 2:45 p.m.; Indiana facing Arizona at 5:30; and Tennessee meeting New York at 8:15 p.m..
