It’s raining in the Bronx …

If it keeps raining, be prepared for this game to be canceled.

A few things:

1. It would be irresponsible to risk injury on a wet field for an exhibition game.

2. The teams are traveling on Saturday night (Yankees to Baltimore, Cubs to Houston), so Sunday is not an acceptable make-up date.

3. A Saturday doubleheader is impractical as you would have two distinct crowds coming and going at the same time. Plus the teams aren’t going to wear out out their bullpens or players.

I have not yet heard what the Yankees plan to do. But I suspect they would just cancel the game and refund the cost of the ticket.

When more information becomes available, I will pass it along.
