Major League Baseball postponed two games Wednesday due to the poor air quality across the Northeast.
The league postponed a game scheduled to take place at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia between the Detroit Tigers and the Philadelphia Phillies, as well as a game between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees that was to be held at Yankee Stadium.
"These postponements were determined following conversations throughout the day with medical and weather experts and all of the impacted Clubs regarding clearly hazardous air quality conditions in both cities," MLB said in a statement.
The Phillies vs. Tigers game is rescheduled for 6:05 p.m. ET Thursday, the league said. The Yankees and White Sox are now scheduled to play a traditional doubleheader game at 4:05 p.m. ET Thursday, according to the MLB.
