(Newser) – Aaron Boone woke up before heading to the ballpark for his first home opener as New York Yankees manager and peeked outside the window. "Huh," he recalled saying to himself. "It really is 100% chance of snow at 7am." Two hours later, the Yankees postponed Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays and rescheduled it for 4:05pm Tuesday, the AP reports. The snowstorm was the fifth to move through the area after four nor'easters in March. The decision to start later in the day Tuesday was made because rain is forecast for the morning.
