UPDATE: It's offical. The Phillies have announced the change.

Here are details from the Phillies:

The Phillies game on Sunday, August 28 against the Florida Marlins has been moved up due to the threat of severe weather from Hurricane Irene. The game will be played as part of a day/night doubleheader on Saturday, August 27 at 1:05 p.m.

All tickets for the August 28 game will be honored for entry into the August 27 day game, which begins at 1:05 p.m. The ShopRite Back-to-School Cliff Lee Gym Bag giveaway for fans 14 and under will also take place at the afternoon game. All gates, including Ashburn Alley, will open at 11:05 a.m. for the 1:05 p.m. game.

The regularly scheduled game on August 27 will still begin at 7:05 p.m. Fans holding tickets for August 27 should attend the 7:05 p.m. game. All gates, including Ashburn Alley, will open at 6:05 p.m. for the second game.

The Phillies starters are scheduled to be RHP Roy Halladay for the 1:05 p.m. game and LHP Cliff Lee for the 7:05 p.m. game.

Both the 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. games will be televised on PHL17. WB Mason Behind the Pinstripes will air prior to the 1:05 p.m. game and The Charlie Manuel Show will air prior to both games on Saturday. In addition, the games will air on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT and the Phillies' Spanish Beisbol Network on WUBA 1480 AM.

 

Original post:

According to a reader who works at the ballpark, the Phillies have notified workers that Sunday's game will be moved to Saturday. They will play a doubleheader, with games at 1:05 and 7:05. Since the original game on Saturday was scheduled for 7:05, we will assume the 1:05 game will honor Sunday's tickets.

Earlier, John Clark reported the potential time change.

  1. man it’s going to be a nice treating myself day on sat. maybe some cheese fries on the side to go with my kamala burger & 20 garlic wings

  2. I agree with IBM. I wouldn’t put any bets on getting in Saturday night’s game. This is going to be some wicked stuff, boys and girls.

  3. So how would parking work for the late game (should it be played)? Do they clear the lots from the earlier game? Just trying to figure out what time to head down there, assuming it’s not cancelled – I’d normally be there about 3 hours before first pitch.
