Major League Baseball Starts Postponing Games

After a long season of almost (checks notes) 4 days, the league has had to start postponing games because for some weird reason, players keep testing positive for a virus that is coincidentally part of, and cause, of a pandemic.

 

Two Monday night MLB games were postponed because of an outbreak of the coronavirus among the Miami Marlins.

The Marlins’ home opener against the Baltimore Orioles is off, as well as the Philadelphia Phillies’ home game against the New York Yankees.

Miami just completed a series in Philadelphia, and seven more players and two coaches with the Marlins tested positive for the coronavirus. An outbreak has spread throughout their clubhouse and brought the total cases in recent days to at least 13, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN’s Jeff Passan and Jesse Rogers.

MLB said the games were postponed while the league conducts more testing.
