Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed; now set for June 4

Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed; now set for June 4

For the fourth time this season, a Detroit Tigers game has been postponed because of inclement weather. All tickets from Saturday's contest that was rained out will be valid on Sunday night, while tickets from Sunday's cancellation can be used on the to-be-determined make-up date.

The Tigers initially canceled just Game 1; at about 1 p.m., they made the sensible decision to scratch Game 2, as well. Both games will be televised on FOX Sports Detroit. It's also the date of the MLB Draft for which the Tigers have the first overall selection. The Tigers were scheduled to be off, while the Yankees would have been traveling between games in Baltimore and Toronto.

The Yankees will return to Detroit on June 4 to play a split doubleheader at 1:10 p.m. and 7:10 p.m., the Tigers announced.




Sunday was tabbed as a split doubleheader after the weather washed out Saturday afternoon's game.

So now with the Yankees in the rearview mirror, the Tigers will have a scheduled day off on Monday - probably a good thing, with no ending in sight for this weather - before resuming their current 10-game homestand on Tuesday with a three-game set against the Orioles. Fans unable to attend the rescheduled game may exchange their unused tickets at any time for any future similar-or-lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months, excluding Opening Day next season. Rain-outs on March 29 and March 31 against the Pittsburgh Pirates have already been made up.
