Governor Andrew Cuomo is making an offer to Major League Baseball, saying the state could plausibly play host to all of the league's games this year. His comments followed the recent situation involving the Miami Marlins, in which over a dozen team personnel tested positive for COVID-19, leading to postponed games. Cuomo says teams would take a private plane to New York, then be tested, with individual housing in hotels.

Major League Baseball has not indicated any recent willingness to pursue a "single site" set up for games.

The Yankees game both last night and tonight has been postponed due to the Marlins situation. Given the Marlins had just played in Philadelphia, which was to host this next series with the Yankees, the league decided both games should be out on hold. The Marlins home opener against the Orioles was also postponed.
