Has there been a season that started out like this one with all the games being cancelled due to the snow and cold weather? I know others have discussed the poor sched. that the MLB has given us, but I guess we have to deal with that. I was just curious if any other season has started like this one?

Nope. This is the first time the US has seen cold and wet/snowy conditions in April. Global Cooling is a beach.

If i remember correctly in 83 or 84 The White Sox got their home opener (i think it was the home opener)snowed out when we got 3 or 4 inches the night before

Wasn't the first ever Sox/Jays game played in snowflakes?

I also recall that the 1992 spring was cold. I'll try to verify. I recall Hawk commenting on it.

About 5 years ago I we spent opening weekend in Chicago. Opening day for the Sox and the next day at that place where the other people try to play baseball in Chicago...and it was in the 10's, ut never did snow. Opending day wasn't as cold, but the next game was brutal, very very cold!

The White Sox in 1982 would up opening the season a week late with a twinightDH with Boston. Snow was so bad both Boston and Chicago went back to Florida for a week.

When they finally did play it was very, very cold at Comiskey that night.

1992 was probably the coldest summer I can remember. I went to a Sat night game in June with my winter coat on. :o:

That was the one i was talking about. I was off a year or so. I just remember being so excited about opening day and then I look out the window in grammar school and see the snow starting to fall:(:

The 1982 season didn't even start until April 11th due to a major blizzard hitting the Midwest. A number of teams were caught in it. The Sox had to eventually open the season in New York for a double header, winning both games 7-6 and 2-0, then they went to Boston and swept the Red Sox, then they came home to play Baltimore and beat them twice running their season opening win streak to eight. The best start in franchise history.

The 1977 opener with Toronto was played in a driving snow storm that left a layer of snow on the field while the teams played. Eric Soderholm talks about the day in his interview with White Sox Interactive.

Lip's memory is better than mine.

The Opening Night DH was with Baltimore, the Boston DH came a week later.

I was at both and it was COLD in the upper deck
