Today's afternoon contest between the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners in Arlington has been postponed because of a tornado watch in the area. Below is the official news release from the Rangers announcing the postponement.
ARLINGTON -- The Texas Rangers announced today's game against the Seattle Mariners has been postponed due to a tornado watch coupled with a forecast of increasingly deteriorating weather conditions.
"The safety of our customers is always our number one concern. Today's matinee had over 8,000 school children in attendance. The tornado watch and the forecast made this decision a prudent one," said Rangers President Jeff Cogen.
The game will be made up in July when the Mariners return to Arlington July 23-25. A specific game date will be determined at a later time. Tickets to today's game may be exchanged for any regular season game on the 2007 schedule beginning tomorrow.
