SAN FRANCISCO AT NY METS, POSTPONED (POWER OUTAGE)

8/14/2003

FLUSHING, New York (Ticker) -- Thursday's game between the San
Francisco Giants and New York Mets at Shea Stadium was postponed
due to the widespread power outage in the New York City area.

The game was not immediately rescheduled.

Power in the New York City area was lost in the late afternoon.
Mets officials did not open gates at Shea Stadium to fans before
deciding to postpone the game shortly after 6 p.m. EDT.

The Giants would have played Thursday without superstar Barry
Bonds, who was placed on the bereavement list Thursday to be
with his ailing father, Bobby. Bobby Bonds recently underwent
heart surgery in the Bay Area.

The Giants are scheduled to begin a weekend series in Montreal
against the Expos on Friday. The Mets will host the Colorado
Rockies on Friday.
