SATURDAY NIGHT PHILLIES GAME RESCHEDULED
The Phillies 7:05 p.m. game on Saturday, August 27 against the Florida Marlins has been postponed due to the threat of severe weather from Hurricane Irene. The game will be played on Thursday, September 15, time to be determined. All tickets for the August 27 game at 7:05 p.m. will be honored for entry into the September 15 game.
The rescheduled Sunday, August 28 game is scheduled to be played at 1:05 p.m. game on Saturday, August 27.
“Given the deteriorating forecast for Saturday night’s game, as well as the evening shut down of public transportation and the concern about conditions our fans might face leaving our game late Saturday night, the decision was made to postpone the 7:05 p.m. game,” said Mike Stiles, Senior Vice President, Administration and Operations.
