Senbatsu spring high school baseball tournament canceled   

OSAKA — The 2020 National High School Baseball Invitational Tournament, known commonly as "Senbatsu," was canceled by organizers on March 11 due to concerns over the spread of the new coronavirus.

The 92nd edition of the tournament had been scheduled to begin on March 19 at Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture. It is the first cancellation of the annual Senbatsu tournament since the event was suspended from 1942 to 1946 due to the effects of World War II.

The organizing committee had already decided at a March 4 meeting to prepare for a tournament without spectators. As viral infections continued to spread across Japan, officials decided that it would be difficult to secure the safety of students and related parties.

The member organizations of the All Japan High School Athletic Federation also decided to cancel national competitions of all 22 sports that had been scheduled in March.
