April showers bring May flowers, but what does snow bring?

Postponed baseball games.

Saturday night’s game between the White Sox and Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field has been postponed due to inclement weather. It’s been scheduled to be made up later this summer.

The news comes after the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Chicago area that is expected to last from 1 p.m. Saturday until at least 1 a.m. Sunday. Midday rain will turn into “heavy, very wet snow early in the afternoon and continuing into the evening,” the weather service said.

Jose Abreu was supposed to be presented his Silver Slugger award, but now that will be pushed back.

The makeup game will be the first part of a doubleheader on July 3. It will start at 1:10 p.m., and the regularly scheduled contest will begin at 7:10 p.m. The first 20,000 fans to enter the ballpark for the first game of that doubleheader will receive an Abreu Silver Slugger bobblehead, the Sox said.

Game tickets (including mobile ones), parking coupons and Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes from tonight’s postponed contest will only be honored at the 1:10 p.m. game on July 3. Fans do not need to exchange any game tickets, parking coupons or Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes to attend the rescheduled game, the Sox said.
