Major League Baseball Postpones 2020 Season

ABC News reports:

There is still no joy in Mudville, at least for a while. Major league baseball has been struck out, thanks to the spread of COVID-19.

Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred Jr. announced Monday that the start of the 2020 major league season has been postponed, a move that matches the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which said people should refrain from gathering in groups of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks.

That would put the opening of the 2020 MLB season in May at the earliest. Major League Baseball canceled the rest of spring training on Thursday and originally said opening day, which had been set for March 26, was delayed for at least two weeks.
