Todd Zolecki commented on an interesting blog post by The Fightins today that there is a very good chance the Phillies/Blue Jays series on June 25-27 would be played in Philadelphia instead of Toronto because of the G20 Summit.
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.”
Would be nice to see Doc Halladay go up against his former squad. And my birthday is the 27th!
