CHICAGO -- The Montreal Expos and Florida Marlins will play games Monday and Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the White Sox, after the Marlins were forced to adjust their schedule for the second time this month because of a hurricane.
The teams were to have started a five-game series at Pro Player Stadium in Miami Monday, but the Marlins can't afford another rainout after they had three games against the Cubs washed out by Hurricane Frances last weekend.
Florida split a doubleheader with the Cubs yesterday and will play single games today and tomorrow at Wrigley Field before moving to U.S. Cellular.
Tickets for the two games at U.S. Cellular are $15, with $5 from each ticket going to hurricane relief.
Where the rest of the series with the Expos will be played had yet to be determined.
The Marlins packed extra clothing before leaving Florida Thursday.
"I don't think I've been through anything where we had to move a game. It's no big deal, we got to play them somewhere. We can't play them in Florida," Marlins manager Jack McKeon said.
"We may as well play them anyplace we can. We've played in Puerto Rico and places like that," he said. "We are just anxious to play, that's the key. "Everybody wants to say it's a burden. Sure, it's tough. But we don't look at it that way, we look at it as an opportunity to cash in. If we do, great. If we don't, we gave it our best shot."
