A design error led to an incorrect photo being printed in the sports section of yesterday's (May 15) edition of The Jamestown Sun.
The photo that ran with the Jamestown Blue Jay softball story "Slugging Sydney: Soulis leads Jays to sweep of Coyotes" on Page 5 was mistakenly placed by Forum Communications Company page designers. The photo that printed depicted the University of Jamestown baseball team competing at the NAIA national championship opening round Monday in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Jimmie baseball delayed to today
The second day of the NAIA baseball national championship opening round Oklahoma City Bracket was affected by weather Tuesday.
Rain in Oklahoma City forced the tournament at Jim Wade Stadium to be delayed, moving University of Jamestown's elimination game against York (Neb.) to this morning, May 16, at 11 a.m. York eliminated Mobile (Ala.) from the tournament 8-5 Tuesday, setting up a rematch between the 18th-ranked Jimmies (42-10) and the Panthers (27-27).
Jamestown defeated York 14-4 to open national play on Monday, later falling to fifth-ranked Oklahoma City 19-8 in the double-elimination tournament. The Jimmies need to win twice today to reach Thursday's championship.
The winner of the opening-round tournament moves on to the NAIA Baseball World Series May 25-June 1 in Lewiston, Idaho.
