With the rain delay, I thought it an opportune time to address the fiasco over fans who left the stadium Monday after being told the game was postponed. I was at that game, and my wife and I sat in our seat for the two hours that the game was delayed. From about 7:20pm-8:50pm, all the information we had was that the giant "Rain Delay" displayed on the center field screen. No other information was given. In a situation like that, for the sake of the fans, the Yanks should make regular announcements as to what they are thinking. If they believe the system will move out within some specified period of time, give fans a heads up so they know you're still waiting out the rain. Just displaying the words "Rain Delay" isn't very helpful, and after a while, you start to wonder what's going on.
