ALCS Tigers-Red Sox Game 5 weather: Playably rainy

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

DETROIT -- When I arrived at Comerica Park some six hours before the scheduled first pitch of ALCS Game 5 between the Tigers and Red Sox, this was the scene on the field:

The tarp is out because it's been raining on and off in Detroit all day. Nothing hard, but a steady drizzle. I guess that's the best way to describe it.

CBS Detroit says the weather situation will remain the same all day and into the night. At this very moment, it's a playable rain. This wouldn't cause a delay or a postponement during the regular season, but who knows about MLB will approach things in the postseason. There might be a problem if the rain picks up. That isn't expected to happen right now and hopefully it doesn't.

Either way, Game 5 will be played in something less than ideal conditions.
