No, it’s not an April Fools’ Day joke – fans of the Boston Red Sox will have to wait a little longer for opening day at Fenway Park.
Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles has been postponed due to rain in the forecast for the Fenway area.
“The decision to postpone our first game of the season was not made lightly,” Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy said in a statement. “The built-in off day was created for just this purpose and tomorrow’s forecast for sunshine also factored into our decision. We have been eager to have fans back at Fenway Park for the first time in 18 months and look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow under brighter and drier conditions.”
Opening Day pregame ceremonies are now scheduled to take place Friday at 2:10 p.m. Tickets for today’s game will be honored for admission to the rescheduled contest.
