The St. Louis Cardinals game against the Chicago White Sox scheduled for today (Friday) is being pushed back as part of a doubleheader to tomorrow (Saturday).

If the Cardinals actually get to play tomorrow (Saturday), it will have been 17 days since the team last played a game, back on July 29th in Minnesota.

Rather than fly to Chicago, the team will travel by bus and 41 rental cars that will be driven individually by members of the team that have been in quarantine.

The bus will carry those joining the club from the Springfield site, which has not had any coronavirus related issues this season.

The Kansas City Chiefs and tight end Travis Kelce, have reportedly agreed to a contract extension.

According to ESPN the deal was signed yesterday (Thursday) and is a four year, 57.25 million dollar extension.

The 30 year old Kelce has more than 1,000 yards in each of the past 4 seasons, becoming the first tight end to achieve that.

The NCAA will not have fall championships events this year.

NCAA President Mark Emmert made the announcement yesterday (Thursday) on Twitter.

Emmert said the cancellation is because there are not enough schools participating due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision affects 22 championships, including FCS football.

Emmert said the fall sports, which include soccer, women’s volleyball and field hockey, should still return to the winter and spring and try to create a legitimate championship for all of those students.
