Yankees' home opener against Rays called off because of snow

Not only did the snow postpone the Yankees' home opener, it also made the series against the Rays a bit tougher. But with snow falling steadily in the morning, the game was called off hours before the start. Pregame ceremonies are scheduled to begin at approximately 3:30 p.m., with the introduction of both teams on the baselines.

The postponement means Yankees fans will be kept waiting to greet new signing Giancarlo Stanton, the star slugger who joined the Bronx Bombers in the close season from Miami.

Some Yankees fans see the white stuff as something of a good omen. That storm kept the Yankees off the field for a full five days until Sunday, April 11, when NY finally opened the season against the White Sox.

As of 8:12 a.m., Central Park in Manhattan had received 4.8 inches of snow, the city's snowiest April day since April 6, 1982, when NY received almost 10 inches.

After splitting their season-opening series with the Blue Jays, the Yankees will send Monday's scheduled starter Jordan Montgomery to the mound on Tuesday.

Contrast those numbers with Pruitt's, who gave up a dozen runs - 10 earned - to the Yankees in just 7 2/3 innings a year ago. "I think I'd rather snow".
