AKRON, Ohio — Due to the curfew issued in Akron for Monday, night, the Akron RubberDucks have postponed the game against the Altoona Curve scheduled for Monday, July 4, according to a news release from the team.

Both teams have a scheduled day off on Tuesday, July 5, so the series between them is scheduled to resume on Wednesday, July 6 at 6:35 p.m.

Fans who purchased a ticket for Monday’s game may exchange it for a reserved ticket to any future RubberDucks home game this season, based on availability. To exchange a ticket, email or contact the box office.
Details on the make-up game for the postponed July 4 game will be released at a later date, team officials said.

A curfew was issued for downtown Akron from 9 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday after several businesses were damaged amid largely peaceful protests in response to the release of body camera video showing the police shooting of Jayland Walker.
