Welp, that’s it for fake baseball for the Detroit Tigers this spring. Bad weather in Washington, D.C. has forced the Tigers and Washington Nationals to call off today’s contest.
OFFICIAL: Today’s #Tigers‘ game canceled due to inclement weather.

The weather report didn’t look good all morning — and they’re simply not going to wait around for a long time or try to force in an exhibition game — so it’s not really a surprise that they just went ahead and called it.
We’ll see the Tigers again on Monday for their Opening Day game vs. the Kansas City Royals at 1:08 PM. The weather report so far calls for 57 degrees and only 10% chance of rain, so we’re looking at decent opening day conditions. Could be warmer, but considering the winter we’ve had, I’ll take mid-to-upper 50s.
