MLB OWNERS APPROVE PLAN TO START IN JULY!
Written by Ballzer on May 12, 2020
We’re still waiting for the players’ union to weigh in, but MLB is looking to start the season on the 4th of July… without fans. According to ESPN, Major League Baseball owners approved a proposal that commissioner Rob Manfred plans to present to players Tuesday on a return-to-play scenario that aims to have baseball back in home stadiums by early July.
The proposal includes a plan to have “Spring Training 2.0” start in the middle of June and have the regular season shortened to 82 games. There’s a proposal for a revenue split as well, so that will probably have some push back from the Players Union when owners present the plan to them later today.
It’s a bummer we probably won’t be able to attend any games in Miller Park’s last season before it becomes American Family Field but some baseball will be better than no baseball at all, at least for the the fans.
