“#MLB owners not discussing canceling season amid Marlins’ coronavirus outbreak”
July 27, 2020 | 2:48pm
Owners completed their weekly conference call Monday and there was no talk of cancelling the shortened 2020 season, The Post’s Joel Sherman reports.
After 11 players and two coaches on the Marlins tested positive, the league has already been forced to postpone two games. The Marlins spent the entire weekend in Philadelphia’s visitors clubhouse, where the Yankees were scheduled to arrive on Monday.
As a result, both Monday’s scheduled games between the Marlins and Orioles and between the Yankees and Phillies have been postponed. The Orioles reportedly are traveling home from Miami, meaning Tuesday’s game likely will be postponed as well.
