MLB Detroit Tigers News

Inclement weather causes lots of game cancellations at start of MLB season

by Patrick Kenny
pkenny11@yahoo.com

Mother Nature keeps giving cities around Major League Baseball the cold shoulder. With temperatures in the mid 20’s and snowfall approaching 12 inches, games in Detroit and Cleveland have been postponed.

Detroit has already had a home game cancelled because of snow and Cleveland will be playing it's home games in Milwaukee for the next three days because of the conditions throughout Ohio.

It’s the first time weather has forced a series to be moved since the Florida Marlins played the Montreal Expos on Sept.13-14, 2004, in Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field because of Hurricane Ivan.

One concern with the players is the thought of playing make-up games during their previously arranged days off. “It could be a big problem down the road,” said Indians’ Travis Hafner. “Once the season gets going, you don’t want to not get your days off – on top of playing double headers. So it could be a pain.”

Another concern of the players is the stoppage of games and continual days off so early in the season. The Cleveland Indians have played the fewest games since opening day totaling only 3. Grady Sizemore, the starting centerfielder, is hitting .429 with 3 home runs. He is the only player in team history to hit a home run in the first 3 games of the season. Scouts and reporters think that with this continual time off due to the weather, some players might fall out of rhythm.

Major League Baseball may want to think about altering the way it schedules games for next season. Not only were Cleveland and Detroit affected by the games being postponed, but also the teams that were traveling to play in those cities.

It could also affect other cities in the future such as Chicago, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh. Major League Baseball needs to take that into consideration and think about moving those games to the South.
