Astros fans will have to wait one more day for Opening Day.

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The weather looked onmious on Sunday in New York as the Houston Astros prepared for Opening Day against the New York Yankees. The weather did not improve on Monday as both teams announced the postponement of Opening Day.

The game will be made up tomorrow at the same time of 12:05 p.m. central time. No word yet if the starting pitchers will be the same, but one would have to assume.

Houston fans will have to wait and twiddle their thumbs until tomorrow as look longingly as the roofed stadium that isn't affected by weather.
