Baseball hopeful for summer start

Thursday would have been the Milwaukee Brewers home opener if it was not for the coronavirus.


Instead, Major League Baseball is trying to decide how it will proceed once the season can begin. In addition to a number of labor issues including how the unique situation will factor in service time and player salaries, there are the games themselves. According to ESPN, officials are looking at possibly the All-Star Game as a season kick-off as all the teams play an abbreviated regular season after preparing in a shortened spring training. Teams could play their home games in front of empty or mostly empty stadiums if at all since some cities could be avoided altogether if it is considered a hot spot for COVID-19. A transaction freeze, changes to the draft and international signing period. and adjustments to the arbitration system are also on the table.
