The Cubs game was postponed today because of rain. This was the MLB’s decision. There will be a makeup game soon.
They are looking into playing the game later tonight or tomorrow night if possible, but they have to wait until the rain stops before deciding whether or not there will be a doubleheader tomorrow.
Why was the cubs game postponed today
The game was supposed to start at 1:20 pm, but with the rain coming down in buckets that just wasn’t possible.
There is no official word on when they will play the game yet, but it is expected to be Monday or Tuesday of next week.
People who had tickets for today’s game can use them for any other regular-season Cubs home game this year. If you’re not sure where your ticket would be good, you should call Wrigley Field before tomorrow morning and they’ll let you know if your ticket can get you into another game or not.
The Chicago area got nearly an inch of rain today, which caused most of Illinois to get flooded roads and closed school districts
The Cubs are usually the talk of the town in Chicago, but today it’s all about how unseasonably cold and rainy it is outside.
The players will be ready to play tomorrow though! They want to take home their first win of the season so bad they can taste it. They were ready for today’s game, even though no team wanted to play in the rain. It just wasn’t meant to be this afternoon.
Fans were not happy about the decision to postpone the game
It was raining hard outside and they were worried about their ability to see the game from the stands. The grounds crew did what they could to make sure the water didn’t get onto the field, but it’s a risky move to hold a baseball game when it is raining that hard. There are a lot of things that could go wrong if you don’t wait for a break in precipitation before deciding to play ball.
Head groundskeeper Roger Baird said this morning that he wasn’t going to take any chances because he doesn’t want anything bad happening during the Cubs home opener this season. That means there won’t be any playing on wet surfaces or grass until everything has dried out well enough for them not to worry anymore. When Baird says something like that, everyone in the Cubs organization listens. He’s a legend in Chicago and one of the best at his job, so he knows what concerns are worth worrying about and which ones you can brush off.
A new date has yet to be announced but is expected in a few days.

People who didn’t go to the game don’t need to worry about not getting another chance because there will be one soon enough! It might even be tonight if the rain stops early enough; then again, that could depend on if they can get the field dry by then or not.
The grounds crew did what they could to make sure the water didn’t get onto the field but it is a risky move when it is raining so hard. That driver isn’t going anywhere soon after hitting a tree under a bridge in a nasty accident.
Fans are hopeful that they will get a chance to see their favorite team play again soon! They are doing everything in their power to get the game going again because they want to see the Cubs take home the win.
The Chicago Cubs aren’t playing baseball today, but that doesn’t mean nothing is interesting to talk about! The weather is causing all kinds of problems across the area, including road closures and school closings.
It could be a few days before the Cubs play again, but don’t worry! You will have another chance soon enough. They can wait until then because this isn’t an elimination game or anything like that. What matters most is that everyone stays safe during this weather event!
