This Week in Milwaukee Brewers History – The Indians/Angels Snow Series
This week in 2007 the 3-game series between the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, scheduled to be played at Jacobs Field April 10-12, was moved to Miller Park. The Indians had already started the season on the road against the Chicago White Sox, winning 2 of 3 games. When they came home to Cleveland, Mother Nature had plans that would interrupt their festivities and the next several games.
The original Indians home opener was Friday, April 6, against the Seattle Mariners. The game was one out from becoming official before being cancelled by a snow storm. In fact, the Indians were leading 4-0 and had a no-hitter going to boot. The game was delayed at first before eventually being cancelled. It was scheduled to be made up the next day as part of a doubleheader, but snow and chilly temperatures again forced the games to be cancelled. Sunday and Monday also turned into doubleheaders as an attempt to get in the missed games. The idea was to no avail – the entire weekend and Monday passed without the Indians and Mariners taking the field to play.
By Monday the upcoming three game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim looked like it could be lost to poor weather conditions as well.
