Wow, look at those rain clouds hovering over Boston just hours before Josh Beckett tosses the first pitch of the World Series tonight in Fenway Park. That shot was taken from a WBZ-TV web cam about 4:25 p.m., Eastern time, by the way. Some pregame showers are expected in Beantown ahead of the Game 1 meeting between the Sox and Rocks, but forecasters say the skies should clear up. There is a 60 percent chance of intermittent light rain forecasted for Wednesday night with lows in the low 50s at game time. The cloud cover will keep the temperatures from dipping much as the game moves into the later innings. If there is more precipitation than expected and Game 1 is rained out, the opener will be rescheduled for Thursday with Game 2 Friday. If that's the case, there will be no off day between Game 2 and Game 3 Saturday in Denver. Commissioner Bud Selig has the final call on whether games are played.
