Snowing in Chicago, Cubs Postpone Home Opener
The Chicago Cubs rescheduled their home opener to Tuesday at Wrigley Field due to freezing temperatures and accumulating snow Monday.
The only team in the majors yet to play at home this season, the Cubs decided at 11:00a Monday to wait another day to host the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The game was scheduled to be a 1:20p CDT start and was pushed back 1 hour before snowfall led to the decision to wait until Tuesday.
About 6 miles south of Wrigley Field at the time the game was called, the Chicago White Sox were warming up to begin a 3-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays as flurries covered the stadium seats.
