There is a shortage of information on the web regarding rainouts and postponed games in MLB. Even when Major League Baseball announces a make-up date for a rainout, it is one game at a time, and there is no resource available for fantasy baseball players to find out when the doubleheaders or make up dates are.
Well, good news! I have decided to dedicate this entire page to nothing except doubleheaders and make up dates for rainouts and postponed games in 2013. I will attempt to follow a relatively easy format here by charting what days the make up games will be played, and then mention whether or not it is a doubleheader.
Doubleheaders and makeup games
June 19th – Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Yankees – doubleheader – make up from June 18th June 27th – New York Mets at Colorado Rockies – single game – make up from April 17th June 28th – Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox – doubleheader – make up from April 23rd July 8th – Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox – single game – make up from May 28th July 23rd – Cincinnati Reds at S.F.

Rainout/ Postponed – No Make up date announced
For this to be a successful operation, it may require the assistance of the community. In the event that I don’t have a makeup date listed, and you are aware of the date, please post it in the comments section below the article, along with your source so that we can verify. A few of the sites that we will accept verification from are Yahoo, ESPN, and MLB.com.
Also, if a game has been rained out, and you want to know if a makeup date has been announced, please post a comment below. I will answer after checking all available resources.
As the list of doubleheaders and makeup games for 2013 continues to grow, I will be sure to update the article to by deleting the games that have already been played, so that the information is kept fresh and relevant..
In the event that a game is rained out, and no makeup date has been announced, I will simply list the game that was rained out until we get official confirmation of the date of the doubleheader/ makeup game. If there is a suspended game, more often than not it won’t need to be listed as they will complete the game the following day. If a suspended game is planned to be completed on a future date, then it will be listed, but that will be rare.
