Today’s Ask Rotoman at mlb.com (with a weather related question) isn’t posted yet, but my editor sent along this press release from the Red Sox about tonight’s game:
Â For Immediate Release
May 16, 2007
FENWAY AREA WEATHER UPDATE (As of 3:00 p.m.)
The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Meteorlogix)Â in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for the possibility of rain showers and thunderstorms in the late afternoon and evening hours that could possibly impact the play of tonightâ€™s Red Sox-Tigers game.
The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 5:05 p.m., and the Red Sox will do everything possible to make certain that tonightâ€™s game will be played. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast for this evening.
