All gates will open to fans with valid tickets at 2 p.m. on Tuesday. Pregame ceremonies are scheduled to begin at approximately 3:30, with the introduction of both teams on the baselines. Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive as early as possible to avoid lines that will increase in length as game time approaches.

Fans holding paid tickets for Monday's game may use them for the rescheduled game or exchange their paid tickets for any regular-season game at Yankee Stadium through the end of the 2018 season (subject to availability). Exchanges may be made at Yankee Stadium ticket windows on Monday until 5 p.m., on Tuesday beginning at 9 a.m. and at any other times the ticket windows are open during the season.

Fans holding complimentary tickets for Monday's game must use them for the rescheduled game.

The Yankees are coming off a four-game series that they split with the Blue Jays in Toronto. The Rays dropped three of four in their home-opening series against the Red Sox.
