After calling today’s home opener against the Red Sox around 2:15pm this afternoon, the Indians are doing their best to help out fans who are not able to get to tomorrow’s (2nd) home opener.
The team announced a better more enhanced policy for the tickets from today’s game, including using them for any game for the months of April or May.
Here’s what the Indians stated after they called the game:
Today’s game was postponed due to the forecast changing from no precipitation to having precipitation most of the afternoon and into early evening. That steady precipitation forecast combined with wind chills dropping into the teens, it was decided by both teams and umpires for fan comfort and player safety to postpone the game.
Here is the official release from the Indians about the policy for tickets from today being used for any game in April or May.
