Why Do the Cards and Cubs Have A Day Off Today? Here’s Your Answer!

Schedule, Jeff Dorsey

The St. Louis Cardinals are in first place and the Chicago Cubs are in last place after both opened their seasons on the road with the Cards winning in Cincinnati and the Cubs losing in Pittsburgh. Both games were by 1 to nothing scores.There are still 161 games to be played and a lot can happen between now and then. But you can’t get to game 162 without playing game #2 next.  So you may be asking, “why do they play one game and have to take a day off before playing game #2?”  Well, here is your answer.

Major League Baseball thrives on all the pomp and circumstances of “Opening Day”.  The worst thing that could happen to a major league team is to schedule an opening day ceremony prior to the game being played and have it rained or snowed out.  Therefore, they schedule an off day in the event the weather is not conducive to playing on the original opening day.  It is basically a fall back day to hold “Opening Day” ceremonies if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.

And now you know why!
