The MLB has reportedly canceled the Miami Marlins' home opening game, as it is revealed that 14 of the players and coaches have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The Marlins are currently in Philadelphia where they played this weekend. On Sunday, the team beat the Phillies 11-6 before delaying their travel plans due to concerns over the virus.
