A pair of Wednesday MLB games have been called off.

The Yankees and White Sox will play a doubleheader Thursday at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET.
The Phillies and Tigers will play Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.
New York and Philadelphia are dealing with smokey, hazy conditions and an orange sky as a result of wildfires in Canada.
