The MLB just released a statement on the report … saying, “MLB has been actively considering numerous contingency plans that would allow play to commence once the public health situation has improved to the point that it is safe to do so.”
“While we have discussed the idea of staging games at one location as one potential option, we have not settled on that option or developed a detailed plan. While we continue to interact regularly with governmental and public health officials, we have not sought or received approval of any plan from federal, state and local officials, or the Players Association.”
The statement continued, “The health and safety of our employees, players, fans and the public at large are paramount, and we are not ready at this time to endorse any particular format for staging games in light of the rapidly changing public health situation caused by the coronavirus.”
MLB officials are targeting a May return to the diamond … reportedly in talks about playing the entire 2020 season with its players, coaches and personnel in isolation in Arizona.
How do you feel about sports leagues being accommodated while the rest of the world remains in isolation?
