Hurricane Irene already impacting Sunday MLB sked

From Comcast SportsNet Thursday, August 25, 2011

Major League Baseball has started to rearrange its weekend schedule as Hurricane Irene approaches the East Coast, shifting a game between the Florida Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies.

The game between the Marlins and Phillies set for Sunday in Philadelphia has been moved up a day. The teams now will play it on Saturday afternoon at 1:05 p.m., creating a day-night doubleheader.

MLB announced the shift Thursday. New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi also says there is talk about his team playing a doubleheader Friday in Baltimore because of potential rainouts over the weekend.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Mets are also home this weekend and could be affected.
