Red Sox hope game will start as scheduled

The tarp is down at Fenway Park. But the Red Sox think they’re going to play at 1:35 p.m. The latest information from the team is:

The current forecast for today’s game calls for the chance for intermittent light rain showers and mist at Fenway during the afternoon hours. All Fenway Park gates will open on time at 12:05 p.m. and we hope to begin today’s game as scheduled at 1:35 pm.

The Indians have a day game in Cincinnati on Monday, so a day/night doubleheader on Sunday would not suit them very well.

If and when this changes, we will post updates here.
