Players from the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels arrived at the Little League Baseball complex in South Williamsport, Pa. early Sunday afternoon, followed soon after by thunderstorms.

As a result, Taylor North’s Hank Aaron Division winners’ bracket semifinal game at the Little League Baseball World Series was postponed to Monday.

Little League officials made it clear early that they wanted to be able to get players across the river to Bowman Field in Williamsport to watch the night game between the Indians and Angels in the MLB Little League Classic.

Taylor North, the Michigan and Great Lakes champion, will face the Wylie Little League, from Abilene, Texas and the Southwest Region, Monday at 1 p.m.
