NOT the first time a game has been postponed this postseason.
Major League Baseball announced Monday that Game 3 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Phillies has been postponed.
Corresponding MLB CommunicationsThe decision was made because of inclement weather, including rain, on Monday night’s forecast for Philadelphia.
The game originally scheduled for Monday, October 31st at 8:03pm ET will now be played on Tuesday, November 1st at 8:30pm ET.
This also pushes the whole series back by one day.
Games 4 and 5 will take place on Wednesday and Thursday (assuming they aren’t rescheduled as well), while Friday is a travel day if necessary.
Should the series go to Games 6 and 7, those will take place in Houston on Saturday and Sunday.
All games begin at 8:03 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Fox and Fox Deportes.
Tickets remain valid for the respective game numbers.
Ironically, this is far from the first time bad weather has struck a World Series in Philadelphia.
As noted by Matt yellowGame 3 in 1993, 2008 and 2009 were all postponed due to rain at Citizens Bank Park.
