The rivalry series between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals will not make it across the pond for a London showcase, Major League Baseball announced Wednesday. 

The series, which was to take place in London on June 13 and June 14, has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns.

Major League Baseball has not set a start date for the 2020 season as the United States grapples with the spreading pandemic.
