Mother Nature Delays LaPorta’s Akron Debut

We’re still waiting for Matt LaPorta’s debut as a Cleveland subsidiary following the big Sabathia trade. The big fella was scheduled to make his first start for the Akron Aeros this evening, but a massive thunderstorm blew through Ohio and put that on hold.

Matt LaPorta’s debut as an Indians farmhand was postponed after a thunderstorm blew through downtown Akron before game time tonight.

Tonight’s game between the Aeros and the Bowie Baysox will be made up Wednesday at Canal Park as part of a doubleheader beginning at 6:05 p.m.

Two seven-inning games will be played.


Akronites. Akronians. Check this guy out on Wednesday. You get a double dose. I’m not tryin’ to say he’s, like, Jay Bruce or nuthin’, but he’s GOT to be good, right?
