Rain Threatens Opening Day In Bronx

Posted by Mark McCray |

Rain Threatens:
ESPN is reporting that rain is threatening play at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Apparently the tarp has been in place on the field for almost 2 hours. Officials hope that they will be able to get this game in but Kruky is reporting that that all depends on who you ask.

UPDATE 12:57pm: Opening Day in the Bronx has been postponed until 2pm. Who knows if it will even get underway by that time. Check back for more later.

Another note:
Bob Sheppard's voice will be at Yankee Stadium after all for Monday's season opener, the final Opening Day in the ballpark's history -- for one batter.

Sheppard, the Yankees' public address announcer since 1951, will not be able to attend the game as he recovers from health issues that have limited his workload. But shortstop Derek Jeter plans to have Sheppard introduce him for his at-bats, the first of which will come in the bottom of the first inning against the Blue Jays' Roy Halladay. Jeter has had Shepard's introduction recorded on tape.
