Yanks-Red Sox will play doubleheader on July 7th

By

The Yankees and Red Sox will make up their rain out from last Sunday as part of a doubleheader on Saturday, July 7th, the team announced. That’s the middle day of a three-day series immediately before the All-Star break. The Yankees have a scheduled day off that Thursday then most of the next week due to the Midsummer Classic. As part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams can recall an extra player and use a 26-man roster during doubleheaders.

    Totally missed this before, makes a lot of sense.

    I’m not sure why I’m asking since I know the answer, but this must be a day-night doubleheader? That gets me to wondering. When was the last time a time played a traditional doubleheader, with fans getting to stay for both games?

      The Mets played a single-admission doubleheader against the Giants last month on Monday, April 23. You missed your chance, RetroRob.
