The Will Dicus Memorial Baseball Tournament has been canceled and rescheduled for June 2021.

The Watauga Democrat reports officials hoped the tournament could be despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the beginning of the state's Phase 2 reopening plan, getting teams to play could be a challenge because of the risk associated with the virus.

According to the report, on of the tournament directors, Bill Dicus, said that between the large number of teams that would have been expected, plus concessions, volunteers, all in close proximity, the decision was made, and the tournament is looking forward to 2021.
