Indians Doubleheader Cancelled

CLEVELAND (AP) - Snow has whitewashed the Cleveland Indians' four-game series with the Seattle Mariners.

The Indians called off Monday's doubleheader because of poor field conditions. It was their third attempt at a doubleheader in three days.

While the snow finally stopped falling Monday, the grounds crew was unable to get the field in shape for the games after three days of snow.

The Indians were still awaiting word from Major League Baseball on whether their three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels beginning Tuesday will be moved to California.

The forecast in Cleveland calls for more cool weather, but no snow. Rain is possible Wednesday.

The Indians still have not played an official home opener.

Friday's game was postponed after the teams played four innings and endured nearly three hours in delays.

The Cleveland area was blanketed by a spring snowstorm, which has dumped more than a foot of snow in some places over the weekend.
