A Class 6A regional baseball tournament was scheduled for today, starting at 2 at Demon Field — weather permitting.

    Rainy weather, including a tornado watch, moved through Ford County early Wednesday evening, throwing a wrench into today’s four-team regional — featuring Goddard High School vs. Derby at 2:30 p.m. and Dodge City vs. Wichita Southeast at 4:30 — and then the winners of the two games squaring off at 7 for the regional championship and the right to advance to the state tournament next Friday and Saturday in Lawrence.

    DCHS officials were huddling this morning to rule on today’s action. If rescheduled, the games will likely be played Friday with the same time frames.
