Red Sox: We’re going to try to play

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 today’s rain showers, which are currently moving through the area, beginning in the very late afternoon hours. We are hopeful this will allow tonight’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 tonight’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 tonight’s forecast and the potential of delay in the start of the game, the ceremony for the retirement of Johnny Pesky’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.
