Yankees delay Monday’s MLB start because of solar eclipse

The New York Yankees have decided to postpone the start of their Major League Baseball home game against Miami on Monday for four hours due to the upcoming solar eclipse.

A rare total solar eclipse will sweep across North America that day, though New Yorkers will only get a partial view as the city is outside the path of totality.

The team announced late Thursday that the game would be pushed back to avoid any issues with the phenomenon.

“After reconsidering the challenges of playing through Monday’s solar eclipse, including potential in-game delays, Major League Baseball and the Yankees have rescheduled the start time of the Yankees-Marlins game on April 8 at Yankee Stadium from 2:05 p.m. to 6:05 p.m.,” the club said in a statement.

Yankee Stadium gates will open to all spectators starting at 3 p.m., the team said.
