TODAY’S RED SOX OPENING DAY GAME
Game To Be Made
Up on Tuesday, April 7 at 4:05 p.m.
MA – Today’s Red Sox 2009 Opening Day game
at Fenway Park has been postponed due to the
forecast of heavy rain throughout the afternoon and evening. The game is
rescheduled for Tuesday, April 7, at 4:05 p.m. to better accommodate fans who
must reschedule. Opening Day festivities now will take place on
Tuesday. Gates will open at 2:05 p.m.
The forecast provided by the Red
Sox weather service, Meteorlogix, indicates heavy rain, strong winds and
possible thunderstorms will begin during the early afternoon hours and continue
throughout the evening.
“After consulting with our
weather service and other professional meteorologists, it became apparent it
would be extremely unlikely, if not impossible, that we could get a complete
game in today so the decision was made to postpone until Tuesday,” said Larry
Lucchino, President/CEO. “Our fans look forward to this unofficial Red
Sox Nation holiday each year, and we want to make sure that they are able to
enjoy the full experience including both the special pregame ceremonies and a
full nine innings of play. We reserved an alternate rain date for
tomorrow for just such adverse circumstances as present themselves today.”
It marks the first Red Sox
home-opening postponement since 2003, when the game was called because of
Tickets for Monday’s opener will be good on Tuesday, April 7.

AM) will carry the rescheduled 4:05 pm game.
The Red Sox and Rays are
scheduled to play the second game of the series on Wednesday at 7:10 pm at Fenway Park.
