Fans have been waiting for the 2020 Major League Baseball season to start since March. Of course, said fans now have to deal with a rain delay during the first game of the season.

Even without fans in attendance, it was a festive environment in the nation’s capital with the Washington Nationals hosting the New York Yankees Thursday evening.

Unfortunately, mother nature was of no help. The game was delayed with New York up 4-1 in the top half of the sixth as a system made its way over D.C.

Having to wait months for the season to start is one thing. Seeing the first game of the actual season delayed due to rain is a completely different monster.

Those around the baseball world reacted in kind.
