PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Portland Sea Dogs have canceled a game because of cold weather.
With the temperature hovering at 36 degrees, and gusty winds making it feel like 26 degrees, the team decided to call off its Saturday afternoon game against the Trenton Thunder.
The official reason was cited as ‘‘unplayable field conditions.’’ Team spokesman Chris Cameron said the ground froze solid overnight and was slow to thaw out.
It was initially believed to have been the Sea Dogs’ first postponement for cold weather, but Cameron said it may have happened one other time in the 1990s.
The Sea Dogs will make up the game with a doubleheader on July 2. And the team is counting on warmer weather for Sunday’s game against the Thunder.
