What About The Children Who Didn’t Have School?

NEW YORK: The start of Wednesday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets was delayed 40 minutes after construction workers at the Mets’ new ballpark broke a water main.

The accident occurred less than an hour before the scheduled 1:10 p.m. start. It was quickly repaired, but Mets officials delayed the start to ensure that water service for restrooms and concession stands would be working.

Citi Field, where the Mets will begin play next season, is next to their current home, Shea Stadium.
