Success - Article sent! close


After a discouraging 3-7 showing on their first road trip of the season, the White Sox were undoubtedly looking forward to getting things turned around back home at U.S. Cellular Field.

They'll have to wait.

With snow flurries falling during the afternoon and temperatures hovering in the upper 30s, the Sox postponed Friday night's game against the Minnesota Twins.

A makeup date has not been announced, and the White Sox advise fans to hold on to game tickets and parking coupons.

Tonight's postponement is the sixth in the history of U.S. Cellular Field due to cold temperatures. The last postponement caused by cold conditions was on April 10, 2008, also against Minnesota.

It's been a rough weather week for the Twins. They had two home games postponed due to cold weather -- Sunday against the Mets and Wednesday against the Angels.

The Sox and Twins will give it another go Saturday, with first pitch scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
