Correction: In today's sports section (Tuesday, July 1 edition), which will be out in a few hours, I jumped the gun a bit and said the Malvern Little League (9-10) team was playing in the district championship game tonight. Their game tonight is actually to get into the championship game, which will be played on Thursday evening at 6 p.m. Their game tonight will be at 8 p.m. at the Arkadelphia Youth Sports Complex.
