An April 5th snowstorm dumped a foot of snow in Portland, one of the largest April snowstorms to hit Portland. Sea Dogs' officials will spend Friday removing snow from the field in an effort to play on Saturday.

This marks the third time in franchise history that the Sea Dogs have been forced to postpone Opening Day due to snow. In 2001, the first three games of the season were postponed due to snow, even a helicopter couldn't dry the field in time to save Opening Day. In 2003, the first as a Red Sox affiliate, the first seven games of the season were postponed (four in Portland and three at New Britain) when a snow storm struck New England on Opening Day.
