MLB Will Pursue “Severe” Penalties For Players Fighting In 2020 Due To COVID-19

Remember in past years when fans would go crazy over major fights on the baseball field from players running out on the field? Don’t expect any of that to happen at all in 2020.

MLB will look to maintain strict social distancing guidelines when games come back and that includes levying heavy penalties for on-field fights, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Just in case we’re clear, Major League Baseball already frowned on fighting in the sport, but seeing the current climate that we are in with COVID-19, it would be highly irresponsible for players to engage in fist fights.
