La nieve, el enemigo del béisbol

Una fuerte nevada obligó que fuera pospuesto el partido del lunes entre los Rockies de Colorado y los Mets de Nueva York en Colorado. El terreno de juego del estadio Coors Field de Denver estaba completamente cubierto de nieve previo a la hora fijada para el inicio del partido. Jugadores de los Mets y los Rockies se divirtieron en la nieve al tratar de practicar.

El partido fue programado como parte de una doble tanda para el martes aunque permanecía un pronóstico de nieve. Desde tempranas horas, los trabajadores se personaron para tratar de poner en condiciones en el terreno de juego.
