DETROIT — Game 4 of the AL championship series between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been postponed by bad weather in the area — although Comerica Park itself was still dry when the game was called.
Wednesday night's game was rescheduled for Thursday at 4:07 p.m., when Game 5 was originally slated to be played. Detroit leads the best-of-seven series 3-0.
The first pitch had been scheduled for 8:07 p.m., but shortly before then the crowd was informed of the delay. A radar forecast for the Detroit area was eventually posted on the scoreboard video screen, as if to explain to fans why there was no baseball despite what was still rather pleasant weather at the ballpark.
The postponement was announced after a delay of about 1 hour, 10 minutes.
