Yes, the Tigers and Indians could’ve played baseball Tuesday night.

But in the end, they decided there was no reason to put the fans through that misery.

With temperatures in the low 30s, and expected to dip even lower into the evening, the Tigers postponed the first game of a three-game series at Comerica Park.

The makeup date hasn’t yet been announced, but it will not be this week. The Tigers and Indians play Wednesday night at 7:08 p.m. and Thursday at 1:08 p.m.
