    2013 Weather Performance Thread

    Might as well start this thread off- current forecast for Opening Day is 43-54 with rain holding off until night time... if it stays that way, it'll be a good start start to the season... I've been to a lot worse Opening Days. I'm just glad it is not this week with the 30 weather we've been having.

    Not to be doom and gloom but over the past 30+ years, April 1st has been the rainiest day of the year.

    Historically for NYC, it has a more than 50% chance to rain on April 1st .

    Sorry

    Sorry
    But if it rains after 6 PM it would not effect the game.

    Weather.com predicting showers for April 1. But plenty of time for that forecast to change.

    People are making travel plans or putting in to take the day off - so it isn't.

    Other than today, over the next 10 days the only other day that has a rain chance is April 1.

    If it's going to rain I hope it's predicted to be a downpour and on Sunday they reschedule the game for Tuesday. Nothing is worse than taking the day off and going to the stadium (and incurring all of the costs) and then they postpone.

    I wouldn't get worked up about a forecast a week away. It was supposed to snow today and I haven't seen a flake yet.

    This could very well happen because the opener is the first of 3 ESPN games being aired that day. Several years ago a Yankees home opener was postponed even know there was just a little rain because ESPN was supposed to air the game and they did not want the Yankees game to start late and interfear with the games scheduled after it.

    The decision to play or not play in the first visit a team makes rests solely with the home team. ESPN and MLB have no input on if the game starts. That was the Yankees call and they botched it

    That was 2008- I think it was also delayed then because they brought out the original pennant that was raised at Yankee Stadium in 1923 as part of the final Opening Day festivities. There was no way that would come out while it was raining.

    Everyone look at the forecast on Saturday. Every meteorologist will tell you that the only reliable forecasts are within three days, and even then it's just an educated guess.

    The 1922 pennent was displayed on the black section of the bleachers during the closing ceremonies on Sept.21. It was not displayed or raised on opening day that season.
