listed on phillies.com, states the following policy:
If any Division Series, League Championship Series, or World Series game is officially rained out or postponed, an announcement regarding the rescheduled date, time and any other particulars will be made (a) on the Phillies' Web site at phillies.com, (b) on WPHT 1210 AM or KYW 1060 AM and, or (c) in local newspapers. In the event of a rainout, please retain your ticket, which includes a rain check stub. Replacement tickets will not be issued.
A Phillies spokesperson said the same policy applies to Monday night's suspended game.
Commissioner Bud Selig acknowledged that the day and time for the resumption of Game 5 will be made with the interests of the fans in mind.
"We've talked to the Phillies and [general partner] Dave Montgomery, and it will be a usual starting time of the game and we'll know, I would think, many hours beforehand," Selig said. "We have to watch the weather. It just is tricky. I know that many second-guess, and I understand that. I've seen some of it.
"But the thing that's been so difficult is that the weather, it just keeps changing. It changed during the game tonight. But obviously we're very sensitive to that, and we'll bend over backwards to be sensitive to the Philly fans, who have been tremendous."
