The Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team games have been postponed following a coronavirus breakout that stranded them in Philadelphia. 14 players and a coach tested positive for the coronavirus.
"The members of the Marlins' traveling party are self-quarantining in place while awaiting the outcome of those results," MLB said in a statement.
Manager Don Mattingly said members of the team would be quarantined in Philadelphia.
The team's home opener against Baltimore was postponed, as well as the New York Yankees' game at Philadelphia, as the Yankees would have used the same clubhouse as the Marlins.
Teammates texted each other about the team's positive tests, but there was no talk of quitting the season.
"We knew this could happen at some point. We came to the ballpark ready to play," said shortstop Miguel Rojas.
The Marlins played exhibition games in Atlanta against the Braves on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Braves have since been without their top two catchers, Tyler Flowers and Travis d'Arnaud, who both showed flu-like symptoms after the games.
