Sep. 7—Two New Hampshire Fisher Cats' next two games in Pennsylvania have been postponed because of COVID-19.
The games scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Tuesday and 11 a.m. Wednesday have been postponed. The series, scheduled to be six games, is set to run until Sunday.
The Reading Fightin Phils posted a statement on their website that the postponements are "to allow for additional testing and contact tracing of members" of the Fisher Cats organization.
"We are adhering to Minor League Baseball's health and safety protocols and will practice caution as we follow the guidance of experts," the organization said.
The postponements come after the team's doubleheader on Sunday against the Portland Sea Dogs at Delta Dental Stadium was canceled. The two games will not be made up.
On social media, the Sea Dogs said the testing involved "members of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats organization."
The Fisher Cats on Twitter said the testing and contact tracing did not involve fans, front office members or game day staff.
The team was scheduled to play six games against the Fightin' Phils at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading, Pa., with the series ending Sunday. The Fisher Cats are scheduled to finish their season with a six-game home series against the Harrisburg Senators from Sept. 14-19.
