KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Saturday's game between the Royals and Seattle Mariners has been postponed due to "the rain that has fallen, the flood watch, the forecast for additional heavy rain around 7 p.m. tonight, and the safety of the players and fans."

The game will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader on Sunday afternoon, with the first game beginning at the regularly scheduled time of 1:15 and the second game to start within 30 minutes of the completion of game one.

This is the second home postponement of the season and the fourth overall postponement of 2017.

The last traditional doubleheader played in Kauffman Stadium was August 22, 2010, when the Royals and Chicago White Sox split a twi-night twinbill. 

Fans holding tickets to tonight’s game must exchange them for tomorrow’s doubleheader or any remaining game on the 2017 regular season schedule. 

The Royals say today’s parking pass will be valid for any remaining regular season game in the 2017 season. Fans can read the ticket exchange policy in its entirety here.

Fans who purchased the Wichita State theme ticket will receive an email regarding the exchange process for their ticket and instructions how to claim their hat.

The Faith and Family postgame concert scheduled for Saturday, August 5 will not be rescheduled.
