There's no question it's pouring here at Fenway Park. But whether or not the game will get in...
That's another story.
We just got a Fenway weather update, so I'll pass that along to all of you.
"The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Meteorlogix) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for moderate rain showers that are currently in the area to subside during the early evening hours.
"The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:05 p.m., and the Red Sox expect that tonight’s game with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays will be played. However, the Red Sox would like to alert our fans to the current forecast and the possibility for delay.
"This forecast is of course subject to change as the day progresses. Additional updates will be provided as necessary."
That was the e-mail we received just after 3 p.m. today. (Sorry for the delay in passing it along.) It doesn't really look all that good to the naked eye, though. So pack a raincoat and some boots as you make your way to the park tonight.
