The Patriots are the Double-A affiliate
of the New York Yankees.

CNN’s Madeline Holcombe and Jason Hanna
reported at least 11 people were killed in New York, New Jersey and
Maryland because of the storm, which caused widespread flooding.

Hurricane Ida made landfall in
Louisiana on Sunday. While it lost the hurricane distinction because
the wind speeds dropped as it traveled across land from the Gulf of
Mexico toward the northeast, it still dropped devastating rainfall
totals.

Many areas in the New York, New Jersey
and the surrounding states were already waterlogged after Hurricane Henri made
landfall in the region on Aug. 22.

The Patriots are currently playing a
six-game road series against the Bowie Baysox in Maryland that runs
through Sunday. Wednesday’s game was postponed because of the heavy
rain.

Somerset is scheduled to return home to
TD Bank Ballpark for its final homestand of the minor league regular
season beginning Tuesday against the Hartford Yard Goats.

The Patriots (60-42) lead the Double-A
Northeast Division with a 3.5-game lead over the Portland Sea Dogs
heading into the stretch run of the campaign.
