If your plan was to get to Fenway Park early tonight to watch batting practice, take your time. The tarp is down and the odds of BP taking place outside are slim.
Meanwhile, throw an extra sweatshirt in the car. You’ll thank me later. It’s cold. We’ll keep you posted on whether the game is delayed. Check the blog for updates.
UPDATE, 3:28 p.m.: This from the Red Sox:
The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Telvent DTN) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for intermittent light to moderate rain showers during the afternoon and evening hours.
The Fenway Park gates are expected to open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:10 p.m., and the Red Sox are hopeful that tonight’s game with the Tampa Bay Rays, which is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m., will be played. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast and to the possibility of delay.
This forecast is of course subject to change as the day progresses. Additional updates will be provided as necessary.
