No baseball at Miller Park this weekend as MLB cancels planned double header

The Milwaukee Brewers won’t be playing baseball at Miller Park this weekend.

After postponing the Friday and Saturday games due to an outbreak of COVID-19 among the St. Louis Cardinals traveling party, the league has postponed the planned double header set for Sunday.

MLB released the following statement:

“Due to additional testing and monitoring of the St. Louis Cardinals’ players and staff members, the
Sunday doubleheader between the host Milwaukee Brewers and the Cardinals at Miller Park has been
postponed. The Cardinals will play four games against the Tigers in Detroit from Tuesday-Thursday, including
a Wednesday doubleheader. The Cardinals and Tigers will serve as the home Club for two games each at
Comerica Park. The Brewers will play this week’s home-and-home series vs. the Chicago White Sox as
scheduled.”

A total of six members of the St. Lous traveling party have tested positive for the virus, including at least three players.

Milwaukee and St. Louis are the seventh and eighth teams that have had to miss games due to positive tests. Currently, 20-percent of the league isn’t playing games, and there was a report on Friday the league was considering shutting down the season. However, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred told ESPN’s Karl Ravech the season will go on, the players need to be better and that there is no reason to quit now.

Milwaukee is slated to open a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Monday.
