The New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox showdowns are always something fans won't want to miss. Unfortunately, Game 1 of the highly-anticipated series will no longer be going down on Thursday night.

That's because there have been some COVID concerns inside the Yankees' clubhouse. Because of this, Ken Rosenthal is reporting that tonight's game indeed has been pushed back.

This is a bummer, but of course the right decision by MLB. The last thing anyone wants is for there to be a breakout. It's best to take the necessary precautions before having the players take the field. We'll see how things shape out the rest of the weekend.
