Irving, TX—Mother nature took control of the pace of play during day one of the Mustang League World Series baseball tournament at Trinity View Park here Wednesday.

The Stephenville All-Stars were scheduled to play Guasave, Mexico at 8:30 p.m., but a long rain delay during action earlier in the day pushed the first pitch past press time. Check out the sports page in the Friday edition of the Empire-Tribune for complete details.

Stephenville is scheduled to battle Joliet, Ill. tonight at 8:30 p.m. In a classic slugfest, Joliet was defeated 15-14 Wednesday by Santa Clara, Cal. Stephenville takes on Santa Clara at 8:30 p.m. Friday.

The Mustangs reached the World Series by claiming the Region IX Championship last week.
