On Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Department of Health put an end to the idea that the Toronto Blue Jays might call Pitsburgh's PNC Park 'home' during the shortened MLB season.

The team was already barred by Canada from using their home field and has been looking at alternative places to to call 'home' as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Pittsburgh Pirates President Travis Williams issued the following statement on the news that the Blue Jays would need to look elsewhere.

“I am extremely proud of our staff’s effort, together with the support of Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, to very quickly present Major League Baseball and the Toronto Blue Jays with an option to host their home games here at PNC Park during the 2020 season.

"This is an unprecedented situation and, therefore, we understand and support Governor Tom Wolf’s decision.  We are in agreement that the safety and health of those in our region must remain paramount.

"We are confident that the great people within the Blue Jays organization, working with Major League Baseball, will secure another option very soon.”
