The Kenosha Kingfish announced in a news release this afternoon that former American League MVP Jose Canseco will not be able to participate in tonight's Home Run Derby at the Harbor because he tested positive for COVID-19.

In the release, Canseco stated he was disappointed not to be able to attend the event this weekend and that "I fully look forward to attending next year's Home Run Derby in Kenosha."

The Home Run Derby at the Harbor is part of Legends Weekend, which will include a celebrity softball game at Simmons Field on Saturday.
