Monday’s game between the White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays has been delayed by fog.

The White Sox lead the Blue Jays 4-2 in the bottom of the third inning at U.S. Cellular Field. The fog began to arrive at the field shortly before the first pitch, but was playable until the third inning when crew chief Jim Joyce and his fellow umpires conferred for four minutes before pulling players from both teams off the field.

The White Sox currently have the bases loaded and two outs with Alejandro De Aza at the plate. De Aza is 2-for-2 with two RBIs.

The fog got so dense before the delay that the White Sox could only offer a “guesstimated” distance of 444 feet on Adam Dunn’s solo home run in the fourth. Dayan Viciedo followed with a double to right-center field that Toronto’s outfielders appeared to have trouble tracking.

The White Sox have already had three games rained out this season.
