The start of the White Sox’ season-opening game against the Tigers on Monday at Guaranteed Rate Field was postponed because of rain and will be made up 1:10 p.m. Tuesday.

The Sox say parking will be free.

The game had been scheduled for 3:10 p.m. with Jose Quintana opposing the Tigers’ Justin Verlander.

It has been raining around the park since around noon and there is rain in the forecast for later in the day.

Both teams went through opening ceremonies, with Sox players entering the field in convertibles and introduced. Tigers players were also introduced, and former Sox Scott Podsednik threw out the first pitch.

The grounds crew pulled the tarp back to expose the foul lines for player intros, and then beyond the pitcher’s mound for Podsednik before covering the field again.

“We’re going to do everything in our power to play,” general manager Rick Hahn said.
