Original Report from this morning:
Home field advantage was already all but lost for Major League Teams heading into the 2020 season thanks (or no thanks) to Covid-19, requiring stadiums to be void of fans for games.
But for the Toronto Blue Jays, they will not even be allowed to play in their home stadium at all in 2020 at the Canadian government ruled against it.
According to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet, she can confirm the Blue Jays have been told they will be playing their home games at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
