Third Time Not The Charm For Indians/Clippers Opener

COLUMBUS, Oh. – After two days of rain and cold temperatures in Columbus pushed Opening Day back to Saturday, it was snow’s turn to crash the party at Huntington Park.

A light blanket of snow on the field forced a third consecutive postponement in Columbus, where the Indianapolis Indians and Columbus Clippers are still patiently waiting to play their first game of 2016. The teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader beginning at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Pirates top prospect Tyler Glasnow is expected to start on the mound for the Indians in game one, with Mike Clevinger taking the ball for Columbus. Indianapolis’ Trevor Williams will get the nod in game two, with Toru Murata taking the hill for the Clippers.

The outlook for baseball on Sunday actually does look promising, with the forecast in Columbus currently calling for little chance of precipitation and temperatures in the mid-50’s.
