Watch the skies
Cruddy weather aside, the Red Sox are hoping to play tonight.
The team issued a statement in the last hour "alerting fans to the possibility of a delay" for its 7:10 p.m. game against the Twins at Fenway Park.
The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Telvent DTN) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for intermittent rain showers in the Fenway area during the late afternoon and early evening hours.
All Fenway Park gates will open as regularly scheduled at 5:40 p.m. with a limited opening on Yawkey Way at 5:10 p.m. The Red Sox hope that tonight’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, which is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m., will be played. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the possibility of a delay.
Weather.com has relatively little precipitation falling on the ballpark tonight.
