The Reading Fightin Phils announced the postponement of Thursday’s game of their series against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at FirstEnergy Stadium due to COVID-19 issues with the Fisher Cats in a statement Wednesday.
The Fightin Phils cited “additional testing and contact tracing of members of the Fisher Cats organization,” just as they did when announcing the postponement of games Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Fightin Phils also reiterated: “We are adhering to Minor League Baseball’s health and safety protocols and will practice caution as we follow the guidance of experts. Further updates will be provided as available.”
Ticket exchange and refund information is available at RPhils.com.
In addition to the first three games of the six-game series in Reading, New Hampshire’s home doubleheader against the Portland Sea Dogs Sunday was canceled due to testing and contact tracing, the Fisher Cats said.
The Fisher Cats posted on Twitter that the testing and contact tracing did not involve fans, front office members or game day staff.
