Orioles Opening Day Delayed, Spring Training Games Canceled

The Baltimore Orioles' Opening Day will be delayed by at least two weeks after Major League Baseball announced its response to the coronavirus outbreak Thursday.

MLB suspended all spring training games as of 4:00 p.m. Thursday, league officials announced.

The start of the regular season was delayed by at least two weeks as well, to give league officials more time to decide how to handle its response to the coronavirus.

The Orioles were scheduled to begin their regular season in Baltimore on Thursday, March 26, against the New York Yankees.
