Texas baseball, softball teams can return Thursday

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas high school baseball and softball teams have been cleared to start playing four days earlier than planned after swine flu fears eased.

The University Interscholastic League said Wednesday that teams could resume games Thursday after originally calling off all competition until Monday. The state's governing body for high school sports said its move was based on the state's recommendation to reopen all schools.

Rescheduled regional track meets that were already announced will keep their new dates, with the state track meet to follow June 5-6 in Austin. The state softball tournament will still be held June 4-6 in Austin, but the baseball tournament has been moved back a week to June 10-13.
