This just in 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 showers and thunderstorms during the early afternoon and evening hours. Conditions are expected to improve as the evening progresses.
The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:10 p.m., and the Red Sox are hopeful that tonight’s game against the Oakland Athletics, which is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m., will begin on time. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast and to the possibility of delay.
