Ice, Ice, Baseball: American League Edition

I recently moved to Colorado and as a native Texan, it has been a struggle adjusting to the difference in temperature. Before I moved here, I had only seen snow maybe five times in my life. After seeing weather forecasts, it looks like that will change this winter. But it interested me in just how cold professional baseball games have been. I took a quick look at game time lows around professional baseball from the past five years. All information was gathered from box scores on Baseball-Reference.com and all temps are from home games including playoffs.
