I wonder if they’ll play at all this weekend? Padres-Giants scheduled to meet again the final weekend of the regular season. https://t.co/BekGM68Oad— Jon Schaeffer (@jonschaeffer) September 12, 2020
Tonight’s game against the Giants has been postponed, and no one outside of the team officials know why.
Here’s the official statement by the team from their Twitter:
Tonight’s game vs SF has been postponed. We will announce additional information as soon as it becomes available.— San Diego Padres (@Padres) September 12, 2020
As of now, it may be safe to assume that it is related to Covid-19, but nothing has been brought to light, and reportedly no one has tested positive in recent days. Time will tell, but for now, baseball has been put on hold.
