The American Legion World Series championship winner has to wait one more day to celebrate.
Tuesday’s winner-take-all title game between the Idaho Falls Bandits and Fargo, North Dakota, was postponed in the second inning because of weather and field conditions. It has been tentatively scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. MDT Wednesday, but that is subject to change based on weather conditions and forecasts. The resumed game will be broadcast on ESPNU.

At the time of postponement, Idaho Falls was trailing 2-1 with no outs in the top of the second. Fargo plated two unearned runs off Bandits starting pitcher Randon Hostert in the top of the first, and Idaho Falls answered with a run in the bottom half of the frame. Hostert got a run back with an RBI single, scoring Bruer Webster from third base.
When the game resumes, Fargo’s Taylor Parrett will be at the plate with a 1-2 count.
No team from Idaho or North Dakota has ever won the American Legion World Series championship. The Bandits are the third Idaho team to play for the title, following Pocatello in 1926 and Lewiston in 2001.
