PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — We went this far into the summer with no baseball and now two baseball teams could call PNC Park “home” for the season.
The Toronto Blue Jays learned Saturday they will have to fly south to play.
In a statement from the team, it respects the government’s decision and safety is a top priority. The ball club went on to say it is looking for the best home location to play the 2020 season.

Now as for how they would work with both teams using the field, there are no details yet.
The Blue Jays have a little more than a week to figure out where home will be. Their season starts on July 29th.
As for the team that usually calls Pittsburgh home, the Pirates, they start the season on Friday.
They travel to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals.
