Yankees-Tigers doubleheader called off

Miggy and Victor. Do you recognize any other Tigers

When they take the field on Tuesday, they will have had three full days off, a rarity in baseball's regular season.

The Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees announced they have cancelled the afternoon portion of Sunday's doubleheader at Comerica Park due to inclement weather.

The mutual agreement on June 4th also happens to be the first day of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft, in which the Tigers hold the No. 1 overall pick.

Game 1 of the twin bill will be rescheduled at a later date.

All paid tickets from Saturday's game are valid for entry for the second game of tomorrow's split doubleheader. The games will be rescheduled as part of a split doubleheader on Monday, June 4 with the first game beginning at 1:10 p.m. and the second game beginning at 7:10 p.m.

If you count rain-outs of rescheduled games, today marked the fifth and sixth times the Tigers have lost a home game to weather this season.

The forecast in Detroit on Sunday called for heavy rain into the evening and potentially an ice storm, with conditions not expected to clear up until Monday morning. Rain and/or snow have now caused multiple postponements in Detroit, Minnesota, and Cleveland; a snow-filled contest in Kansas City; and anger from teams who somehow played through the rough weather. No ticket exchange is necessary.
