The weather is not being very cooperative, however, and there have already been two postponements of Thursday’s games in New York City (Yankees versus Red Sox) and in Minnesota (Minneapolis) where the Twins were to begin the season against the Seattle Mariners. The Yankees home opener has been postponed to Friday due to a threat of rain on Thursday afternoon and the Twins home opener has been pushed off until Friday due to expected cold conditions along with the likely combination of rain and snow. Elsewhere, the Washington Nationals are scheduled to begin their season at home on Thursday afternoon against the Mets and showers are likely to be a factor. In Chicago, the Cubs home opener is in jeopardy as it’ll be windy, cold and showers are quite likely. In the nation’s mid-section, high winds have been a problem during the past 24 hours and the Kansas City Royals home opener on Thursday afternoon may feature 40 mph wind gusts as they battle the Cleveland Guardians (formerly the Indians). Meanwhile, the world champion Atlanta Braves will have no problem weather-wise with their planned home opener; however, winds will gust to 30 mph or so and likely be a factor on the heels of a strong cold frontal system.
