With Boston English, the usual location, out of commission because of renovations, officials have finally been given clearance to use Madison Park for this weekend's Boston City League baseball championships.
English (North champ) will play New Mission (South champ) at 10 a.m. in Saturday's first semifinal while Latin Academy (North runner-up) will meet East Boston (Central champ) at 1 p.m. in the second semifinal.
The winners will meet at noon Monday in the championship game.
