  • Major League Baseball news:
    • MLB owners approve two rules changes:
      • All postseason games, as well as one-game playoffs, will be played to their conclusion. Games called due to weather will be suspended, regardless of the number of innings played.
      • Home-field advantage for one-game playoffs to break ties for division championships or wild-card berths will now be determined by head-to-head record, instead of a coin flip.

  • CECAFA Cup in Kampala, Uganda:
  • News:
    • Israel Football Association decides to resume play in the top three divisions this weekend for the first time since the start of Israel-Gaza conflict. Lower divisions will still be suspended. Teams whose home grounds are within 40 km of the Gaza Strip will have to play their matches on alternative grounds out of the danger zone. Also, matches between teams from Jewish and Arab towns may be played on neutral grounds by police order for fear of possible crowd violence. Officials of teams that could be affected by this decision, in particular Hapoel Be'er Sheva F.C. and Bnei Sakhnin F.C., say they object to move away from their home grounds.
