PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two Portland Pickles players have tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Wednesday.

The team said the players, who were not identified, live together. The test results came Wednesday morning.

“They are both doing well and in quarantine,” the team said in a statement online.

As a result of the positive tests, the next seven days’ worth of games has been canceled “to give all players the opportunity to get an additional round of testing,” according to the team.

Anyone who bought tickets can be refunded by emailing info@picklesbaseball.com.

The Pickles usually play in the West Coast League, but the league canceled their season about a month ago. They now play in the Wild Wild West League this year, which is not affiliated in any way with the West Coast League.
