NEW YORK — All 30 major league teams played on the same day Saturday for the first time since July 26.

The league’s plan to play a pandemic-shortened 60-game regular season has been interrupted by positive COVID-19 tests, protests over racial injustice, a hurricane and rain — and that’s just in the past week.

Novel coronavirus testing has postponed 37 games.

The first was a Marlins-Orioles game July 27 after Miami experienced a team-wide outbreak during the season’s opening weekend.

The most recent was a Mets-Yankees game Aug. 23 following positive tests for a Mets player and coach received Aug. 20.
