With more rain scheduled to arrive Friday afternoon, this spring’s wet weather has forced the White Sox to scramble their schedule.

The first game of today’s scheduled doubleheader against the Tigers has been postponed and will be rescheduled for Saturday as part of a straight doubleheader that will begin at 1:10 p.m.

The Sox made the announcement as the Sox were taking batting practice under blue skies and the sun shining. Rain was forecasted to arrive just in time for the first pitch of Game 1, which was scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

The Sox and Tigers will attempt to play Game 2 at 7:10 p.m. although there is a chance of rain throughout the evening.

Gates at Guaranteed Rate Field will be opened to fans at 5:40 p.m.

Fans with tickets for Saturday’s game that was originally scheduled for 1:10 p.m. will be able to attend both games of the doubleheader.
