Tarp still on the field

There’s been no announcement about a first pitch. The gates are open and plenty of folks have entered the stadium, but the tarp is still on the field and there’s no indication that a game is about to be played.

Players are no longer outside playing catch, and there’s no activity in the bullpens.

UPDATE, 7:47 p.m.: The update is that there is no update. Still a tarp on the field. Still no word on a first pitch. The rain hasn’t fallen very hard in the past hour, but the radar is a mess. I’ll be a little surprised if they play this thing. If they’re waiting this long, it makes me think they’re waiting for that first little outburst of rain to send everyone home, but I honestly haven’t heard a thing. That’s just me guessing.
