Rain postpones Guardians game versus Yankees in Cleveland
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - What was originally just a delay for the first pitch of the Guardians game against the New York Yankees turned into a postponement as rain poured into Progressive Field on July 1.
The matchup was slated to start at 7:10 p.m. on Friday, but now it will be rescheduled as a split doubleheader on Saturday, July 2.
The rescheduled game will start at 12:10 p.m. while the originally scheduled Saturday game will begin at 6:10 p.m.
Gates for the makeup game will open at 11 a.m. while gates for the second game will open at 4:30 p.m.
Fans will be cleared from the ballpark between games.
Ticket holders for the July 1 game can use their exact same ticket to enter the ballpark at 12:10 p.m. for the makeup game on July 2 and will not need to have to exchange tickets.
However, ticket holders for the postponed game will not be allowed to attend the July 2 game scheduled for 6:10 p.n. unless they hold a ticket for that game as well.
Fans who are unable to attend the makeup game on July 2 will be able to exchange into one of 44 different game options.
All single-game tickets for the postponed game can be exchanged until 12 p.m. on July 2.
Only single-game tickets purchased directly from the Ballpark app, CLEGuardians.com, or the Box Office can be exchanged.
All tickets bought at the Progressive Field Box Office must call 216-420-HITS to exchange.
Ticket exchanges are final, must be completed in one transaction, and all tickets must be exchanged into the same game.
This was Friday night’s starting lineup:
Fans in the ballpark on Friday were supposed to enjoy a series of promotions at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario, including a Guards T-shit handed out at the gate, Sugardale Dollar Dogs, $2 Pregame in the District presented by Miller Lite, and Fireworks to classic rock “Oldies but Goodies” presented by Dollar Bank.
Hours before the game was postponed, the Guardians unveiled a mural on Gateway Plaza honoring Larry Doby, Frank Robinson, and Satchel Paige to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Doby breaking the American League color barrier.
