Into each life a little rain must fall.
But if you’re a Royals fan with tickets to Game 1 of the World Series against the Mets, does it really have to rain on Tuesday night?
The most recent forecasts say there is a chance of rain when Game 1 is supposed to start. Should the game be rained out, here’s what you need to know if you have tickets to Game 1 or Game 2:
A ticket to Game 1 of the World Series has “Game 1” or “Home Game 1” printed on it. If Tuesday’s game is rained out, Game 1 would be played Wednesday and fans would use the ticket that has “Game 1” or “Home Game 1” printed on it.
So if you have a ticket for Game 2, which is scheduled for Wednesday, it would be pushed to Thursday, which is scheduled as a travel day. To get into a game on Thursday (and remember, this is only if Game 1 is rained out on Tuesday), then you would use a ticket that has “Game 2” or “Home Game 2” printed on it.
Also, if Game 1 is rained out and you have a ticket that says “Game 2” or “Home Game 2,” you won’t be able to use that ticket on Wednesday. It would be good on Thursday.
At a news conference Monday at Kauffman Stadium, baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said he is aware that rain could be an issue. He will monitor the situation.
“Well, let me say this, I think that I would be reluctant to begin a game or — even more reluctant to begin the warmup process if I didn’t think we could play a substantial portion of that game,” Manfred said.
“I am not a believer, and I think you saw it with the forecast in Chicago in the game we played here on Friday night, if you get to 8:00 and it’s time for everybody to get ready to go at 8:00 and you don’t have rain, I think you have to play. I am a believer in that.
“By the same token, I think we know enough about the forecast that we’re not going to get in a situation that we start at 8:07 and get rained out at 8:12 and burn two starting pitchers.”
Hopefully, it won’t rain at all and the games will be played as scheduled.
