Press release from the Phillies:
Tomorrow’s Home Opener between the Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers has been postponed and rescheduled for Tuesday, April 8 at 4:05 p.m. Monday’s game has been postponed due to a weather forecast for considerable rain all Monday afternoon.

All Opening Day pregame festivities, including the Citizens Bank Way Opening Day Party and on-field performances, will take place on the rescheduled game date. The Citizens Bank Way Opening Day Party will now begin at 1:00 p.m.
