2020 MLB Season Reportedly May Not Start Before June
It looks like Major League Baseball fans might not be seeing their favorite squads for quite sometime because of the coronavirus crisis.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, several executives think it would be a surprise if the MLB season started before June.
Major League Baseball suspended action until April 9th after the NBA suspended their season following the positive test of COVID-19 of Rudy Gobert.
Commissioner Rob Manfred and the league’s owners held a conference call earlier this week to formalize the plan.
“MLB will announce the effects on the schedule at an appropriate time and will remain flexible as events warrant, with the hope of resuming normal operations as soon as possible,” MLB said in its statement.
MLB had been scheduled to open its season March 26, with all 30 teams in action.
