The Phillies have moved up the start time for Thursday's series finale against the 2015 National League East division champion New York Mets to 12:05 p.m.
According to a team press release, the game was rescheduled, at the direction of Major League Baseball, due to 'expected inclement weather in the evening'.
Fans holding tickets to Thursday’s game (October 1) may use them for the 12:05 p.m. start or exchange them for complimentary tickets to any remaining Phillies home game this season or any 2016 home game (excluding Opening Day on April 11, 2016). Fans wishing to exchange for 2016 tickets may do so when single game tickets go on sale in February. Exchanges should occur by May 31, 2016.
Gates will open tomorrow starting at 11:05 a.m. The game will still be televised on Comcast SportsNet, as well as aired on 94 WIP FM and 1210 WPHT AM.
This will likely be the first of many changes made to the Phillies' remaining 2015 schedule, barring the path and timing of Hurricane Joaquin.
