Trivia: Who played the Phillies in the first-ever suspended World Series game?
Tampa Bay Rays
New York Yankees
Chicago White Sox
Correct Answer: Tampa Bay Rays
So why is this answer correct? : Inclement weather and other unfavorable conditions have caused several postponements of playoff games, but it wasn’t until 2008 that a World Series matchup was actually suspended. By the sixth inning of Game 5 in that year’s championship, what started as a light sprinkle had turned into a downpour that made the field unplayable for the Phillies and their opponents, the Tampa Bay Rays. With no sign of clear skies ahead, the two teams were forced to suspend play. Two days later, the Phillies finally won the game — and the series.
