More St. Louis Cardinals Games Postponed as Another Player Tests Positive


More bad news for St. Louis baseball over the weekend. Another St. Louis Cardinals player has tested positive for COVID-19, Lane Thomas, and this has lead to more postponed games, along with continued testing and quarantining at home for players. Our thoughts are with them and we are hoping for a healthy return to baseball very soon.

In an official news release on Sunday, August 9, 2020, "Major League Baseball announced today that the upcoming three-game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates, scheduled for Monday through Wednesday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, has been postponed. In light of the most recent positive test results, MLB and the Club believe it is prudent to conduct additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More information regarding the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later in the week."
