The Cincinnati Reds have announced that tonight’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed. The two teams will have a doubleheader tomorrow in a day-night split.
Game one will begin at 1:10pm at Great American Ball Park. Game two will begin at 6:40pm unless game one somehow is going on to the point in which 6:40pm is closer than 30 minutes from the end of game one.
Tomorrow will be an interesting day for the doubleheader and more. Wednesday is September 1st, which means teams can expand their rosters from 26 players to 28 players. The days are over of calling up 10+ players in September. Teams are going to need to be more picky about who they call up given that they only get to make two choices. The Reds haven’t tipped their hat as to who they will choose at this point.
Even with expanded rosters, in doubleheaders teams can still get the “extra player” for it. That means that tomorrow’s game two could have a 29-man roster for each team.
If you were holding tickets for Tuesday night’s game you can use that ticket for the 1:10pm game on Wednesday.
