    P​otential Weather Headaches

    -Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox (1:10 p.m. ET): While there should be plenty of sunshine at Fenway Park, it will be windy and chilly. Temperatures might not rise past the low 40s, and west winds gusting to 30 mph could send wind chills into the low 30s during the game.

    -Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals (3:10 p.m. ET): This one is all about the wind. South winds may gust over 30 mph during this opener. Fortunately, we're not expecting any rain or thunderstorms. Temperatures in the 60s are certainly tolerable as well.

    -Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres (3:10 p.m. ET): Strangely enough, perhaps the most challenging opening day weather at any ballpark without a roof could be in Southern California. Scattered showers are possible at times. It will also be breezy, with temperatures not making it out of the 50s. All in all, it's fairly clammy weather for Southern California.

    T​here have only been three rainouts since the San Diego Padres moved into Petco Park in 2004, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The last rainout happened almost six years ago, on May 7, 2017. There was a rain delay before Game 4 of the National League Division Series last Oct. 15 in San Diego.​
