SAN DIEGO — Friday night’s game between the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres was postponed minutes before the scheduled first pitch due to a positive COVID-19 test in the Giants organization, MLB announced.
Both teams lined up for a moment of silence for the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and then the national anthem. But the Padres didn’t take the field and the team announced the game had been postponed.
Players from both teams lingered in and around the dugouts well after Garrett Richards was scheduled to throw the first pitch.
