NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The wintry mix in the forecast Monday for the New York City area forced the postponement of the NY Yankees home opener against the Houston Astros.
The game which was originally expected to be played at 1:05 p.m. was rescheduled for Tues., April 5.
The team made the official announcement via its Twitter page:
Today's Opening Day game is postponed due to inclement weather; will be made up tomorrow, April 5th. Stay tuned for official press release.— New York Yankees (@Yankees) April 4, 2016
The last time the Bombers postponed an opening day game was in 2008, but that occurred during the game as snow began to fall.
