At New York's LaGuardia Airport, where snow fell at rates as high as two inches per hour, almost 200 flights were canceled, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.

A winter weather advisory was in effect in NY, and a steady snow forced the Yankees to postpone their scheduled 1:05 p.m. home opener against Tampa Bay.

But it's obviously a disappointing day for the passionate Yankees fans, who were excited to see the dynamic duo of Stanton and Aaron Judge - two sluggers who clubbed over 50 home runs last season.

It was a winter wonderland outside Yankee Stadium on Monday morning. "We're supposed to have April showers, not snow".

The Mets later announced their home game against the Philadelphia Phillies, which was slate to begin at 7:10 p.m. Monday, has been rescheduled as part of a single-admission doubleheader on July 9.

"I was ready to go", Stanton said on the Yankees' website.

On the bright side, Giancarlo got a great opportunity to flex on the gram.
