Mariners-Giants Series Moved Due To Poor Air Quality 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 16, 2020 11:54 am

This week\'s Seattle Mariners-San Francisco Giants series has been postponed and moved to California.

The Mariners will now travel to San Francisco. Tuesday\'s game will be made up on Wednesday with the second, and final, game of the series now scheduled for Thursday. Both games will be played at Oracle Park.

The wildfire crisis across California, Oregon and Washington has sent thick smoke and ash into the skies. There are currently nine major wildfires burning in the Washington.

\"Unfortunately, the air quality in Seattle has gotten worse overnight here at T-Mobile Park and it is not clearing at all today,\" Mariners president Kevin Mather said. \"Forecasters expect it to clear late Thursday and into Friday morning. As always, the health and safety of the players, and our staff is our first priority.\"
