Put away your foam fingers, friends, for Tigers Opening Day has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The dreary drizzle and chilly temperatures were enough to get the organization to reschedule the game for tomorrow, Friday, March 30. The first pitch will be thrown out at 1:10 p.m.

According to WDIV, this is the first time in history the organization has postponed Opening Day. It's also one of the few times the season has begun before April — likely because the weather in Michigan is shit before then.

All tickets for the Opening Day game will be honored for the new date. If you can't make tomorrow's game against the Pittsburg Pirates, you can exchange your tickets for a future regular season game in the next 12 months, according to a press release. And if you're already in Detroit, you could instead check out the Detroit Institute of Art's new Play Ball! Baseball at the DIA exhibit.

If this is all good news for you, check out our Opening Day guide to get prepped for the big day tomorrow. By the way, there are still plenty of tickets available.
