All players and staff of the Nippon Ham Fighters baseball team will be tested for swine flu after two players and a coach contracted the virus, the Japanese Pacific League team said Wednesday.

Former major league outfielder Terrmel Sledge, pitcher Naoki Miyanishi and head coach Junichi Fukura were confirmed to have contracted the virus when 27 people were tested Tuesday.

Wednesday's game in Asahikawa has been called off because of rain, so affected players will remain in the team's hotel as a precaution.
