In this particular instance, it was the Fox Saturday game. I can't remember a game being rescheduled because of extremely hot weather, but it might not be a terrible idea. Last night, they had free water booths and misters set up at Fenway, it's a shame they didn't have them Saturday, or, if they did, that this happened anyway. It's a terrible tragedy, but perhaps it can be used to teach people how dangerous all kinds of extreme weather can be. We forget so easily.
