The scoreboard is empty, too.

Tonight’s game has been rescheduled as the first game of a day-night doubleheader, tomorrow, Saturday, September 4, beginning at 1:05 p.m. The regularly scheduled game between the Red Sox and White Sox will be played at 7:10 p.m. Saturday evening.

Tickets for tonight’s game will be good for admission to Saturday’s 1:05 p.m. game between the Red Sox and White Sox.

The decision to postpone tonight’s game was made in consultation with Major League Baseball and in consideration of the Governor’s state of emergency declaration. The Red Sox and Major League Baseball feel it is better to err on the side of public safety even if the current weather forecast dramatically changes its course.
