Well, this is awkward. The first season the Fan Fest gets moved from Chase Field to Salt River Field, and with 72 hours left to go, the event gets postponed. But they’re certainly not wrong about the forecast for this weekend, which pretty much sucks, especially on Saturday:

Suspect this will have a significant impact on attendance. While technically a holiday, I dunno about anyone else, but it’s not one to which my company pays much attention, and it’ll be business as usual there. However, that’s probably for the best, as one of my main concerns on hearing the event had been relocated, was how SRF was going to cope with a crowd maybe 60% more than an average sell-out there.

If only there were a suitable venue where the team could hold the event, capable of coping with 25,000 people and possessing a roof which could be closed if necessary...
