April 1st, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Orioles season opener against the Red Sox scheduled for Thursday at Fenway Park has been postponed due to weather. The forecast calls for periods of rain throughout the day in the Fenway area.

"The decision to postpone our first game of the season was not made lightly," said Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy. "The built-in off day was created for just this purpose and tomorrow’s forecast for sunshine also factored into our decision. We have been eager to have fans back at Fenway Park for the first time in 18 months and look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow under brighter and drier conditions."

The Opening Day game is rescheduled for Friday at 2:10 p.m. Tickets will be good for admission to the rescheduled contest. Pregame ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 1:40 p.m.
