Weather update from Yankee Stadium

NEW YORK — It’s 6:48 p.m. and the tarp is on the field as a light rain falls. Obviously the game will not be starting at 7:10 p.m. as scheduled.

Unofficially, we have been told the teams will try and play the game tonight even if they have to play in some rain. Because it’s the last series in New York for the Sox, MLB officials have the call on this one.

As more information becomes available, we will pass it along.
