Major League Baseball has confirmed that The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies will not play their Monday night game tonight as scheduled.

The game was set to take place at Citizens Bank Park. Yesterday, the Miami Marlins confirmed a COVID-19 outbreak.

The Marlins have had at least 14 individuals test positive since last week.
