First game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed on Sunday

Due to the ongoing inclement weather hammering MI and the general Great Lakes area this weekend, the doubleheader between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been rescheduled for a future date.

The Tigers initially canceled just Game 1; at about 1 p.m., they made the sensible decision to scratch Game 2, as well. They have had less-than-ideal playing conditions for the majority of their games to start the 2018 campaign, and Detroit is not alone.

It's far from a lovely day for baseball in Detroit, so they'll only play one.

Tim Kaine, also appearing on " Face the Nation ", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. The U.S. and its allies accused Assad's forces of using chemical weapons, a claim Syria and Russian Federation have rejected.


Tomorrow, the Lugnuts will host the Whitecaps for a doubleheader with first pitch at 1:05 p.m. Luis Severino was expected to toe the rubber for the Yankees against Francisco Liriano and the Tigers this afternoon. The games will be made up in a split doubleheader on June 4.

In both those cases, no ticket exchange is necessary. Fans unable to attend the rescheduled game may exchange their unused tickets at any time for any future similar-or-lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months, excluding Opening Day 2019.

The first game had been planned as a make-up game after Saturday's game between the teams had been rained out. And the team's sixth game of the season, on April 4 against the Royals, also was postponed.
