The New York Yankees And the Boston Red Sox Their seasons will not start on Thursday as originally scheduled. Instead, the Yankees announced Wednesday that their opening day contest has been rescheduled for Friday, April 8 due to Thursday’s forecast that includes bad weather. This game will begin at 1:05 PM ET and will be played at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees Red Sox game is the second opening-day competition to be postponed due to weather concerns. The Seattle Mariners And the Minnesota Twins They postponed their first competition from Thursday to Friday as well. It seems entirely possible, if not even probable, that the same will end up proving to be the case for the contest scheduled between New York Mets and the Washington citizens. D.C.’s forecast Thursday is unfavorable for baseball play on Thursday, apparently to be charitable.
Regardless, here’s what the updated Thursday schedule looks like right now.
