That means the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders won't take the field in Moosic.

The Triple-A All-star game set for this summer at the field was canceled back in April.

This is the first time in league history an entire season has been canceled.

The RailRiders are the top minor league team of the NY Yankees.

The International League is planning for the 2021 season.
