SOUTH CHARLESTON - Rain showers in the Charleston area postponed second-day action of the Little League 11-12-year-old state tournament being held at Little Creek Park.
The weather left the Tygarts Valley All-Star team looking for hotel rooms.
"It's a scramble right now for us," Tygarts Valley manager Greg Smith said. "We'll have to make some calls to try and get some rooms for our team."
