90% Chance Of Rain For Citi Field & Yankee Stadium Openers (What To Expect)

The forecast is still lousy.  90% chance of rain at 5pm and 90% at 8pm.

As I mentioned in the 5 Reasons Friday’s Game Won’t Be Rained Out I expect we’ll be sitting in our seats tomorrow. 

The reason for this post is because I’m getting asked what will happen if the game isn’t played.

It won’t be made up.   There is zero percent chance of a day-night exhibition on Saturday, and since neither team plays in New York on Sunday there’s no chance of the game being made up on Sunday.   Even if the Mets wanted to, why would the Red Sox when they play at home Monday at 2:05.

The Mets know we want to see the stadium, and they’ll hope for the best.   I think we’ll get our first look at the tarp, and find the game quickly called.  They won’t make us sit there until 9:30 hoping for a window.

As for refunds – they’ll likely offer you a ticket for a game later in the season.

The Mets aren’t making it rain.  This just sucks.  Let’s hope for the best!

The official Mets (non)refund policy is as follows:

Tickets are not subject to any refund and bear no cash value. In the event a regulation game as defined by Major League Baseball is not played due to weather, Act of God, or any other reason, then the ticket will not be subject to any refund but will constitute a rain check that can be either (1) used for admission to the rescheduled game, if any, subject to certain doubleheader limitations (see below), or (2) exchanged for a same price ticket for any regular season Mets home game within 12 months of the originally scheduled game, subject to availability. In the event the rescheduled game is part of a single admission doubleheader, tickets for the game originally scheduled to be played on the doubleheader game date will take precedence.

The Yankees policy is similar.

(I wanted to include a photo of a rain delay of Citi Field but we don’t have one yet).
