The Red Sox are hoping to avoid a repeat of Friday night's fiasco at the Fens, announcing that the game is scheduled to start on time at 7:10 p.m.
The team sent out a 5 p.m. release, saying the following:
"The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Meteorlogix) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for the possibility of rain showers in the area during the afternoon and evening hours.
The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:10 p.m., and the Red Sox are hopeful that tonightâs game with Tampa Bay, which is scheduled for 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."
