Rain washes out Sunday’s Phillies game, ceremony to unveil new Kalas statue

    Sunday’s heavy rain has washed out the Philadelphia Phillies game, forcing the team to postpone a ceremony to unveil the new Harry Kalas statue until Tuesday.

    The team made the announcement just before 11 a.m.

    According to the Phillies website, Sunday’s game against the Washington Nationals will be played Tuesday, September 20 at 1:05 p.m. as part of a split doubleheader.

    The ceremony to unveil the new Kalas statue has been rescheduled for Tuesday, August 16 at 6:40 p.m., prior to the Phillies’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    The team says all tickets for Sunday’s game will be honored for entry into the September 20 game.
