Avatar of AlishbaW




(CTN NEWS) – Due to the forecasted impact of Hurricane Hilary, Major League Baseball (MLB) has made adjustments to its schedule by rescheduling three Sunday games set to take place in California.

The alteration in plans comes in response to Hurricane Hilary’s looming presence off the Pacific coast of Mexico, where it has intensified into a formidable Category 4 storm.

In light of this, MLB has proactively decided to rearrange the games to ensure the safety of all involved.

The affected games, namely Arizona versus San Diego, Tampa Bay against the Los Angeles Angels, and Miami facing the Los Angeles Dodgers, have been incorporated into split doubleheaders scheduled for Saturday.

This decision was met with appreciation from Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who recognized the inconvenience for fans holding Sunday tickets but commended the organization’s forward-thinking approach.


Unprecedented Circumstances and Safety Priorities: MLB Managers React to Rescheduled Games

“This situation is truly extraordinary,” remarked Roberts. “The occurrence of a hurricane in Southern California is unprecedented. Our focus is on staying ahead of this phenomenon, guaranteeing the safety of everyone, and minimizing any potential impact.”

The game sequence will begin with the first match at 12:10 p.m. local time, followed by the second game at 5:40 p.m.

Similarly, the game at Angel Stadium will start at 1:07 p.m. local time, with the second game following suit at 6:07 p.m. At Dodger Stadium, the planned game times are 12 p.m. and 6:10 p.m.

Angels manager Phil Nevin expressed his astonishment at the unprecedented nature of the situation. “In my 52 years of residing here, I’ve never encountered anything quite like this,” Nevin stated.

“While there’s a sense of intrigue about the unfolding events, I can’t deny that as I delve deeper into the information, my concerns grow.”

The decision to reschedule these games underscores the significance of ensuring the safety and well-being of all those involved, showcasing MLB’s commitment to handling unexpected circumstances in a responsible and efficient manner.


Game Schedule Adjustments and Hurricane Preparations: LA Galaxy, LAFC, and the NFL in Southern California

The LA Galaxy and Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) of Major League Soccer have made adjustments to their game schedules. The initially scheduled game for the Galaxy against Real Salt Lake on Sunday has been rescheduled to take place on October 14.

Additionally, the match between LAFC and Colorado, originally set for Sunday, has been shifted to Wednesday night at BMO Stadium.

Hurricane Hilary experienced an early increase in intensity on Friday before gradually weakening. The maximum sustained winds, which had reached 130 mph (215 kph) in the evening, subsided from a previous high of 145 mph (230 kph).

As it approached Mexico’s Baja California peninsula on Saturday night, it was projected to maintain hurricane status. By the time it reached Southern California on Sunday, it was anticipated to have transitioned into a tropical storm.

Remarkably, the National Weather Service reported that Southern California hasn’t encountered a landfall from a tropical storm since September 25, 1939.

Tampa Bay pitcher Zach Eflin expressed surprise at the possibility of hurricanes in the region, stating, “To be completely honest, I didn’t even know hurricanes were an option out here. I didn’t realize that till today. I’m just hoping it’ll be a tropical storm by the time it gets here.”

Meanwhile, the NFL is preparing to hold two exhibition games over the weekend at SoFi Stadium in Southern California.

On Saturday night, the Los Angeles Rams are set to face the Las Vegas Raiders, followed by a Sunday night match between the Los Angeles Chargers and the New Orleans Saints.

As of now, the league has not provided any official response regarding inquiries about the status of these two games.


In conclusion, Due to Hurricane Hilary’s imminent impact, Major League Baseball has rescheduled three Sunday games in California for safety.

Hurricane Hilary, a Category 4 storm, prompted MLB to ensure everyone’s well-being by rearranging the games into Saturday doubleheaders. Managers Dave Roberts and Phil Nevin appreciated the proactive decision amid the unprecedented situation.

Hurricane Hilary’s intensity fluctuated as it neared Southern California, shifting from hurricane to tropical storm status. This unique circumstance highlighted the rarity of tropical storm landfalls in the region since 1939.

In the midst of these changes, the NFL planned weekend exhibition games at SoFi Stadium, with no official response yet on the games’ status given Hurricane Hilary’s impact.
