Commissioner Bud Selig said he has discussed contingency plans for East Coast games that could be affected by the storm this weekend.
The Phillies, Orioles, Red Sox and Mets are all scheduled to play home games this weekend.
While there is a chance Sunday’s game could be rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Friday or possibly Saturday, the Braves had not been contacted by the Mets or Major League Baseball as of Wednesday afternoon.
The Braves and Mets share just one common off-day, Sept. 8, next month.
Personally and selfishly I’d love to see the Mets make a very early “don’t worry about coming” / raincheck offer early so that folks don’t even have to worry about wasting tickets.
I don’t know the ins and outs of how ticket revenue is shared but in a world where all options are available I’d like to see an announcement where tickets for Saturday and Sunday can both be used and also you’ll be given credit for a game in 2011 or a choice from select dates in 2012.
I’m personally worried about traveling to Queens for a Saturday 4pm game…not out of safety..but my time is valuable.
