This press release from the Red Sox:
The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Meteorlogix) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for the possibility of a break in todayâ€™s rain showers, which are currently moving through the area, beginning in the very late afternoon hours. We are hopeful this will allow tonightâ€™s Red Sox-Yankees game to be played as scheduled.
The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:05 p.m., and the Red Sox will do everything possible to play tonightâ€™s game, which is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast.
With the uncertainty of tonightâ€™s forecast and the potential of delay in the start of the game, the ceremony for the retirement of Johnny Peskyâ€™s uniform number, scheduled for this evening, has been moved to Sunday, September 28. It will take place at approximately 1:15 p.m. prior to the Red Sox-Yankees game at 1:35 p.m.
This forecast is of course subject to change as the day progresses. Additional updates will be provided periodically.
Sounds like we could be here for a while. Oh, goodie.
