BOSTON (AP) - Despite the threat of rain, Major League Baseball is confident Game 1 of the World Series between Boston and Colorado at Fenway Park will go on as scheduled Wednesday night.
``The weather conditions so far look OK,'' MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said. ``We are expecting some early showers, but by game time we're hopeful they will clear up.''
There is a 60 percent chance of intermittent light rain Wednesday night, according to William Babcock, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton. Temperatures at the 8 p.m. start were expected to be in the low 50s, Babcock said.
``With the clouds acting as a blanket, the change will only be a couple of degrees by the end of the game,'' he said.
The forecast also calls for winds of 8 to 10 mph out of the north or northeast.
If Game 1 is rained out, the teams would play the first two games Thursday and Friday with no off day before Game 3 in Denver on Saturday, Courtney said. The final decision on whether the games are played rests with commissioner Bud Selig.
