Sunday’s games at the 2016 Little League World Series were postponed due to inclement weather in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, according to the Little League World Series’ Twitter account.

The tournament resumes on Monday with all eight winning teams from the opening round competing. Canada pulled off something that hadn’t been done in 51 years when they handed Japan their first opening-round loss since 1965. They will face their next opponent, Asia-Pacific at 6 p.m. on Monday.

The Little League World Series features the eight top Little League teams from the United States and the eight best international teams. The crop of talented 11- and 12-year-old baseball players will play in two double-elimination tournaments. The eventual U.S. champion will go up against the international champion on August 28 to vie for the the Little League World Series champion title. In each of the last four years, an international team has been crowned the champion.

There will be five games each on Monday and Tuesday, according to the Little League’s website.
