The Phillies game scheduled for Sunday, August 28 against the Florida Marlins has been moved to Saturday as part of a day-night doubleheader. Thanks a lot, Irene.
The game was pushed back to 1:05pm, with Saturday night’s game still scheduled for 7:05pm. Anyone with tickets to the Sunday game can use them Saturday during the day. The folks with Saturday night tickets should probably expect to use them at a future date as the looming shadow of Irene means the game will likely get postponed.
The Florida players probably find it annoyingly ironic that they’re dealing with a hurricane in the northeast.
UPDATE: The Phillies have announced that Saturday’s 7:05 game has been postponed due to Hurricane Irene. It will be made up on Thursday, September 15. Game time has yet to be determined.
