Rain Could Postpone Yankees-Nationals Opening Game Tonight

We’ve waited (and waited) for the 2020 MLB season to start — and now Mother Nature may be throwing a wrench into those plans.

It looks like tonight’s season opener between the Yankees and Nationals might get rained out.

The forecast for Nationals Park in Washington includes severe thunderstorms.

If it does get rained out, the game will be played Friday instead with Gerrit Cole facing Max Scherzer.

Cole signed a nine-year, $324 million dollar deal with the Yankees in December.

The right-hander’s much-anticipated Yankees debut has fans and the pitcher himself feeling giddy.

He told the Daily News, “I’m stoked. I’m stoked. I’m already having trouble sleeping. I’m so excited.”

Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, no fans will be in the stands.

Are you excited to watch MLB again? Will there be a noticeable difference in the feel of the game without fans?
