The weather’s been creating havoc in the baseball world, and it’s not just the major leagues that are being put in a bind (although my fantasy team is looking forward to all those Grady Sizemore doubleheaders). Because minor league teams do not have the resources to deal with Mother Nature, games are called much sooner and much more often than they are in The Show. Here’s a quick wrap up of how the weather has affected each Yankee affiliate so far this year (includes tonight’s games):
Triple-A Scranton:Â 4 total games called off, none made up, haven’t played since Saturday
Double-A Trenton: 5 total games called off, none made up, also haven’t played since Saturday
High-A Tampa: 1 game rained out, and it’s already been made up
Low-A Charleston: no cancellations…yet
On to tonight’s action:
Triple-A Scranton snowed out. No word on a makeup date.
Double-A Trenton‘s doubleheader was rained out. They’ll try to make up one game as part of a doubleheader tomorrow, no word on the makeup of the second game. If they play tomorrow, it’ll be their first action since Saturday.
