Weather Not Cooperating

Tyler Kepner, whose at Yankee Stadium, says rain and wind are pelting the Bronx and the tarp is on the field.
The Yankees are eager to play the final Opening Day at Yankee Stadium but, two and a half hours before it is scheduled to start, the weather is not cooperating. Rain is falling, it is raw and chilly and the tarpaulin is covering the field. The Yankees have moved their batting practice indoors.
Of course the next series will have the Yankees host Tampa Bay. Why MLB does not schedule the first series the Yankees play against the Devil Rays in Florida instead of the Bronx I will never understand. Last year saw the Yankees play Tampa Bay in snow and freezing temperatures while Tropicana Field sat dry, warm and unoccupied.
