About four hours before the scheduled first pitch on Saturday, the Yankees announced: “Today’s Yankees-Diamondbacks game (Saturday, September 23) will not be played due to the forecast of sustained inclement weather and will be rescheduled for a yet-to-be-determined date.”
The teams are next scheduled to play on Sunday. Rain also is forecast for New York on Sunday.
