Rain threatens today's exhibition game in Sarasota, but vacationing Orioles fans will get no sympathy from home

The Orioles are scheduled to play the Tampa Bay Rays this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium, but there’s a high probability that rain will interrupt or shorten the game.

The forecast calls for a 40 percent chance of rain at the 1:05 p.m. game time and a 65 percent likelihood of precipitation over the next three hours, and there is little incentive to play through the weather or wait out a long delay during the exhibition season.

Of course, the vacationers here in Sarasota are going to get no sympathy from their friends at home, where the temperature in Baltimore might break through the 40-degree barrier by about that time.

Even with the possibility of a wet afternoon and likely thunderstorms here, the temperature at game time is expected to be 79 degrees, so O’s and Rays fans will — at the very least — get a free steam bath.
