    The Boston Red Sox season opener against the Cleveland Indians on Monday has been postponed due to weather conditions.

    "Bad news: Today's #TribeOpener has been postponed," the Indians announced on Twitter on Monday afternoon. The game will now be played on Tuesday at 1:10 p.m.

    Monday was to be the Boston debut of ace David Price, who agreed to a $217 million, seven-year contract with the club in December. 

    It would also have marked the return to the dugout for Boston manager John Farrell after he stepped away last August to receive medical treatment for non-Hodgkin's Burkitt lymphoma.

    This year is also noteworthy because it will be the last for World Series hero David Ortiz, who will retire at the end of his 20th season in the major leagues.
