Brewers-Cardinals game postponed due to COVID-19

Brewers-Cardinals game postponed due to COVID-19


by - Senior Editor -

Friday's contest between the Cardinals and Brewers has been postponed because of two positive COVID-19 tests with Cardinals players.

The Cardinals are self-isolating at their hotel and not entering the park today.

This is the new normal as teams that get positive tests normally have to shut down the game or series that they are participating in to be proactive.

MLB has rescheduled the series for a doubleheader on Saturday.

"The rescheduling as a result of two positive COVID-19 tests in the Cardinals’ organization is consistent with protocols to allow enough time for additional testing and contact tracing to be conducted," MLB said in a statement.

The Brewers were supportive of the safety measures today.

“We are supportive of Major League Baseball’s decision to postpone today’s game and look forward to playing our home opener as soon as conditions safely allow," David Stearns said in a press release. "The health and safety of our players and employees are, and will continue to be, our top priorities."

Here are the latest reports on the situation:
