April 6 (UPI) -- Thursday's New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox game, set to be the first matchup of the 2022 MLB season, was moved to Friday due to the expectation for storms in New York City, the Yankees announced Wednesday.

The game will now be played at 1:05 p.m. EDT Friday at Yankee Stadium. The Minnesota Twins also were scheduled to host the Seattle Mariners on Thursday in their season opener, but that game also was postponed to Friday due to inclement weather.
