Another update: Ivy Stadium has been closed off, so the tournament will now take place at two venues instead of three (Sun Marine and Himuka); a maximum of 4 games will be played out per day in order to account for the loss of Ivy Stadium.  The tournament will be extended one day with the final round taking place on the 28th.

The Miyazaki High School Baseball Federation decided to limit admission to player guardians.

Another outbreak of foot and mouth disease was reported in Miyazaki.  And plans to lift some restrictions in the prefecture on the 16th will now be put off until, at the earliest, the end of the month.

Due to this recent outbreak, the Miyazaki High School Baseball Federation held an emergency meeting today in order to go over additional options for their upcoming tournament (including closed games without anyone in attendance and changing tournament dates).  It seems there's also a chance they won't be able to use Ivy Stadium because the recent outbreak is close by.

I'll be updating this post with more information as it becomes available.
