The rain was the protagonist of the first day of the U-18 Baseball World Championship and resulted in the game between Mexico and the Czech Republic on Thursday evening, August 31st being canceled and having to be postponed.
The Mexico and Czech national teams were preparing for their debuts in the tournament, but the conditions in which the diamond at Taichung Stadium was abandoned meant it was not possible to play, and the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC ) announced that this duel was postponed to the tournament September 6.
Against this background, the match (on the second day of tournament activities) against the representative of Australia is now scheduled in the game calendar of the Mexico U-18 baseball team.

For the game against the Czech Republic, Mexico U-18 baseball team manager Enrique “Che” Reyes had announced right-hander Humberto Cruz (Diablos Rojos del México) as his starting player. For the game against Australia, Luis Aguayo (Leones de Yucatán), also right-handed, will go into the middle of the diamond.
Mexico is part of Group A of the U-18 Baseball World Championship, which is being held in Chinese Taipei, and in that roster the only teams remaining are the hosts and Australia, who finished the tournament with a win for China Taipei 3 opened -0.
This is the 17th time the Mexico national team has competed in the U-18 World Cup, most recently in 2022 where they finished sixth. The best performances in history were two fourth places, one at the 1992 edition in Monterrey and the other in 2006 in Cuba.
