CHICAGO -- The forecast for Wednesday night's game between the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field appeared dire heading into the day.
However, by 3 p.m. local time the rain had subsided and some Cubs players were playing catch in the outfield while officials tended to puddles of water that had pooled in parts of the warning track.
Both the field and the bullpens are currently covered by tarps and the sky is still overcast. Radar shows that the worst of the weather may not pass over Chicago until around 7 pm. Earlier in the day, reports of 60-mph wind gusts and hail had been reported in the area.
