The Pittsburgh Pirates are hosting their first Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN for the first time since July 28, 1996 and their first ever at PNC Park.
Pirates and Cardinals fans who subscribe to mobile alerts from ESPN's SportsCenter and MLB At-Bat App, received an alert telling them that the game tonight was postponed. Some even got two of them within 15 minutes of each other.
Here's the problem. It's currently 75 degrees and partly sunny in Pittsburgh right now. No rain or meteors in sight. Just in case you weren't in western Pennsylvania when you saw the alert.
Here's the SportsCenter Alert(s)...
The Pirates twitter account said that everything is scheduled as planned, and the ESPN wesbite still has the game beginning at 8:05pm EST.
This isn't the first time the SportsCenter App has glitched since the update last October.
Here's another alert that had the Pirates and Cubs ending in a 0-0 tie in 10 innings last month.
The Pirates can't be too happy about this. Especially since this is the first time in 18 years that Pittsburgh has been highlighted on Sunday Night Baseball at home.
So, go to the game, it's still on. Ignore another bad glitch by ESPN's moblie app.
