Tribe-Clippers game called due to snow
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Cleveland Indians’ exhibition game against Triple-A affiliate Columbus Clippers was called after 2 1/2 innings Wednesday because of snow with the score tied at 1.
The temperature was 38 degrees at Huntington Park with a wind chill of 29 and snow was forming on the outfield warning track when Clippers president-general manager Ken Schnacke announced the cancellation.
In the third inning, Clippers right fielder Jordan Brown lost a flyball because of the snow and overran it before reaching back to make a catch near the wall.
Cleveland played at the ballpark for the first time since making the Clippers their top farm team in 2009.
Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera (sore right hand) was the only Indians starter not in the lineup.
