Some are recommending an influx of scheduled seven inning doubleheaders. Meanwhile others are arguing for rosters be extended, reduced games to the regular season or even playing in empty stadiums.

An in depth view of a couple of reputable Rawlings Major League Baseball baseballs with the imprinted signature of Robert D. Manfred Jr., the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, sitting within the dugout prior to the Spring Training sport between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium on March 1 in Lakeland, Florida. More games means his players would be more likely to be paid their full salaries, which means he gets paid more. While NBA and National Hockey League enthusiasts have had to maintain their sports activities being unexpectedly taken off air, MLB enthusiasts didn't also have the luxurious of witnessing the season get underway, as Opening Day was once scheduled for Thursday. "I'm gonna get my neutral-site World Series after all".

The plan laid out by Boras arguably is rife with potential pitfalls, including how teams would be forced to play games in October and November in cold-weather climates.

It is perfectly understandable where Boras is coming from. "The difference is how the playoffs are run and where they're played".


On the thinking that revenues will be down considerably, some teams were hesitant to commit the usual range of dollars to amateur signings this year, particularly when there won't be opportunities to actually scout most of the players in 2020.

These are hard times for Major League Baseball.

But with the start of the season indefinitely delayed, fans are left to search for placeholders in lieu of the excitement and pageantry that comes with beginning another year.

Prior to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic bringing Major League Baseball to a grinding stop, the Los Angeles Dodgers expected to face the San Francisco Giants on Thursday for Opening Day of the 2020 season.
