First game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed on Sunday

The Detroit Tigers were scheduled to play the first pitch of their game against the New York Yankees at 1:10 p.m. ET.

The first game had been planned as a make-up game after Saturday's game between the teams had been rained out. Rescheduling today's game (or games) will prove more complicated, as this is the Yankees' only visit to Detroit in 2018. This decision coincides with this year's baseball calendar schedule including four extra days off for teams. Fans unable to attend the rescheduled game may exchange their unused tickets at any time for any future similar-or-lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months, excluding Opening Day 2019. The Tigers were scheduled to be off, while the Yankees would have been traveling between games in Baltimore and Toronto. Yet they're still holding out hope they can play the nightcap, now scheduled for 7:10.

The multiple rainouts this weekend have also altered the Tigers' rotation for that upcoming series vs. Baltimore.

It's fair to suggest that the seemingly never-ending cold-weather playing situations for the Tigers to start the season has led to their offensive woes early on, to some degree (pun intended). The Yankees won 8-6 behind two Aaron Hicks homers in Friday's game.
