The Aberdeen IronBirds and the team's fans will have to wait another day to get the 2017 baseball season started at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium.
Monday's late afternoon thunderstorms and persistent rain forced the New York-Penn League opener against the Hudson Valley Renegades to be postponed.
The game will be made up at a later date and Tuesday's regularly scheduled game will serve as the opener. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
Throwing the game's real first pitch and a few more, will be Baltimore Orioles closer Zach Britton. Britton, who was a starting pitcher for Aberdeen during the 2007 season, is rehabbing a left forearm strain.
