The Yankees are hosting a doubleheader in the Bronx against the visiting Chicago White Sox on Thursday after postponing Wednesday's game due to poor air caused by Canadian wildfires.

Yankee Stadium remains blanketed with a thick cloud of smoke, but with air quality improving Thursday, the team felt it was safe to play a twinbill.

Thursday afternoon's crowd appeared sparse, although that could be a product of the postponement rather than any anxiety by Yankees fans.

And baseball isn't the only New York-area sport being impacted. The New York Giants called organized team activities on Thursday and Friday, while racing at Belmont Park was also cancelled two days before the facility is scheduled to host the final leg of the Triple Crown with the Belmont Stakes.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul warned the Belmont Stakes could be called off if the air quality index exceeds 200 on its scale.If the air quality is 150 to 200, only horses that pass an additional pre-race vet examination will be permitted to race.
