Roof closed for Game 4 at Chase Field

Roof closed for Game 4 at Chase Field

PHOENIX -- The D-backs had hoped to have the Chase Field roof open for Games 3 and 4 of the National League Division Series.

So much for that.

A major dust storm that blew through the Phoenix area Tuesday forced the roof's closure.

Then Wednesday, the D-backs and Major League Baseball talked throughout the day about the weather and decided to err on the side of caution and keep the roof closed.

"It's tough because it's a beautiful night," D-backs team president/CEO Derrick Hall said.

The crowd clearly agreed as boos could be heard when the public-address announcer informed the crowd that the roof would remain closed for the game.

The roof at Miller Park in Milwaukee was closed for the first two games of the season.
