Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc across much of southeast Texas. Many people have been doing whatever they can to help the victims.

The Texas Rangers are not willing to help out it seems though, at least when it comes to playing a three game series in Houston. Houston’s Minute Maid Park was in “good condition”, but obviously not ready for a baseball game, according to Business Insider.

Astros president Reid Ryan said,”We went to the Rangers and said ‘hey, let’s switch series. You guys have our home series, we’ll take your home series. They rejected that and didn’t want to do that. The Rangers wanted us to play the next three days at their place, but they did not want to trade series with us. They wanted all six games at their park,” according to Business Insider.

They eventually decided to play on a neutral field because the Astros do not want to play all six games giving the Rangers home field advantage that many times. The neutral field will keep the game fair and the players happy.

According to Business Insider, the teams decided to play on Tropicana Field, home to the Tampa Bay Rays.
