Not even a couple of weeks after I had finally figured out that Roy Halladay might be starting in one of the games in Toronto this coming June, now it turns out that series might not be in Toronto after all.
The Fightins reported earlier today that there were rumblings the June 25th-27th series originally scheduled to take place in Toronto could be shifted to Philadelphia due to the G20 Summit.
Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki also wrote on the possibility of the change in venue. He spoke with Katy Feeney, MLB’s Senior VP of Scheduling and Club Relations and basically she could not confirm or deny whether the series will be in Philadelphia or Toronto.
Things are still up in the air at this point, but I find it hard to believe that the G20 Summit might be wreaking so much havoc with the Blue Jays schedule that it would cause them to move baseball games to an entirely different city.
There is still a possibility either the Friday June 25th or Sunday June 27th game could be canceled, which would lead the way for a day/night double-header to be played on Saturday June 26th.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
