Heavy rain still falling in Chicago
By Sahadev Sharma
After Wednesday's rainout, the weather hasn't gotten any better for the Rangers and Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday.
With heavy storms throughout the evening, numerous reports of flooding in the area have filtered in Thursday morning. By 9:45 a.m. CT, there was still a steady rainfall with the field and bullpen at Wrigley covered and rain water pooling in certain parts of the warning track.
According to weather services, heavier storms are expected to come around 11 a.m. Media has been informed that the teams will wait as long as needed to get the game in to avoid any scheduling headaches that may occur due to a pair of rainouts. First pitch is scheduled for 1:20 p.m.
