Could the Phillies Get 84 Home Games?
The Fightins (bookmark ‘em) caused a stir this morning when they wrote that the Phillies’ June 25-27 series against the Blue Jays in Toronto has been moved to Philadelphia because of the G20 Summit. I never read the post because @meechone, the top dog at The Fightins, removed it because he said he could not get the information confirmed.
Is this why Twitter crashed today?
Anyway … the Phillies playing 84 games would be kind of a big deal, so I contacted Katy Feeney, who is MLB’s senior vice president of scheduling and club relations. I asked her: “Is there any chance that series is moved to Philly or elsewhere, or is the series definitely going to be played in Toronto?”
Her response: “We are fully aware of the situation and working with the Blue Jays and the G20 organizers and security as well as the Phillies and once a final determination is made for any of the games, we will announce.”
The Phillies declined comment when asked about events at the Bank being rescheduled.
Sounds like I shouldn’t book my flight to Toronto yet.
