The Cleveland Indians postponed their season opener as the temperature went down to 30s and kept dropping and will resume today April 5, a day later. The announcement didn’t come any sooner as fans were already outside the stadium freezing and all ready to watch the game.

Cleveland Indians could have made the decision a lot earlier to spare the freezing fans outside the stadium waiting to get in and the season opener.

David Price who signed as a free agent in December for the Boston Red Sox to a whopping $217 million dollars will have to wait another day to show what he is worth.

The first pitch is scheduled for 1:10pm on April 5, Tuesday and hopefully the forecast for partly cloudy skies will not delay or postpone the game anymore.

According to the clubs’ official announcement — “Today’s game was postponed due to the forecast changing from no precipitation to having precipitation most of the afternoon and into early evening. That steady precipitation forecast combined with wind chills dropping into the teens, it was decided by both teams and umpires for fan comfort and player safety to postpone the game. Tomorrow’s forecast will continue to be cold, but no anticipated precipitation.”

It is the second time that the Indians postponed their season opener in the last 9 years when a snowstorm stopped a four-game series against Seattle in 2007.
