* Players are bracing for cold weather today, giving the Astros’ clubhouse a very burglar-like feel. So far I’ve spotted at least five players wearing protective face masks, including this Opening Day third baseman: (courtesy of @brettwallace29)
There’s a lot of hullabaloo flying around because of the less than desirable weather conditions, but every weather report I watched on the local news this morning, as well as regular visits to weather.com, indicate the rain and light snow will have moved out of the Philly area by 1 ET, which happens to be gametime.
Play ball, and, as we say in baseball, Happy New Year!
