Rain Statement. For Us
"Today's game will not start on time (1:25 p.m.).
Sox spokesman John Blake said the team will re-assess the weather situation at 1:30 p.m. The Sox are concerned about starting the game too late because of the 8:05 nightcap starting time. The team needs time to be able to clear the park and get ready for the night crowd.
The other consideration is the people holding tickets for the afternoon game had been rained out in April and the team wants to make every effort to get the game in.
The Red Sox say their forecasts say the weather is supposed to clear eventually, but the question is when." ***Peter here, and isn't that the answer for everything in this life?
