According to numerous sources, tonight’s Pittsburgh Pirates-Cincinnati Reds game has been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test with one of the Reds players. No word yet on whether or not the two teams will be able to play Sunday’s game. The Pirates already had three games to make up with the St Louis Cardinals, which were rescheduled yesterday.
The Pirates-Reds game today has been postponed.

If there’s any other news about this game or tomorrow’s contest, we will add it here.
Plenty of history articles to read, including three new ones today that will all be up by noon. I’ll probably add a fourth just to keep myself busy.
UPDATE: Sunday’s game has been postponed as well, though all of the new tests today came back negative for both teams. There’s a chance that they could play a Monday doubleheader, since both teams are scheduled off.
Non-Game UPDATE: As promised, I wrote an extra history article. Took a little longer because I spent a lot of time reading all of the game recaps available because some details didn’t much up. An early franchise game between the Pirates and Reds that was called “the most remarkable game ever played in Cincinnati“.
