Yankees, Cubs Postponed In New York

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Rain is forecast all day and all evening in the Bronx, so the Yankees did the right thing.

Some teams (ahem!) wait forever to call games, make their fans sit out in miserable conditions, and...

Well, let's just say the New York Yankees don't.

It's still almost seven hours before the scheduled game time Tuesday evening, and the Yankees have acknowledged the horrific weather forecast for the New York area this evening. Rather than inconvenience their fans and employees, the Yankees called off the game many hours before stadium employees would have had to leave for work. Kudos to them.

So the teams will play a day-night, split-admission doubleheader Wednesday (the weather's supposed to be fine), with the first game at noon CT, the second game at 6 p.m. CT. I don't have any info on the pitching matchups, though I suspect they'll stay the same.

With no Cubs game tonight, if any of you would like another game thread for the Cubs' minor-league teams posted this evening, let me know in the comments here and I'll post one.
