BUFFALO, N.Y. — Professional sports have shown that flexibility is key during a pandemic. 

With that in mind, Major League Baseball is taking action in delaying the start of the Triple-A season by a month. 

ESPN was first to report the news. 

The Bisons were originally scheduled to open on April 6. The team confirms the new tentative opener will be May 4 at home against Worcester. 

The Bisons at this point still don't know where "home" will be. The U.S.-Canada border still remains closed, so the parent Toronto Blue Jays have tentative plans to move to Buffalo after their first two homesteads in the Major League season that will take place at their spring training home in Dunedin, Florida. 

The Blue Jays have said they will find a temporary home for the Bisons so long as they occupy Sahlen Field.
