Yankees vs Cubs postponed because of bad weather; day-night doubleheader on Wednesday

The interleague game between the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs has been postponed because of bad weather.

The teams will make up the game Wednesday as part of a day-night doubleheader.

New York also postponed ceremonies marking the unveiling of a plaque honoring Nelson Mandela's visit to Yankee Stadium in 1990. The ceremonies, planned during the offseason for Jackie Robinson Day, were rescheduled to before Wednesday night's game.

A light rain was falling in late morning Tuesday, and rain was in the forecast throughout the day.
