Baseball could look a lot different than it did when the Milwaukee Brewers walked off the field at Nationals Park last fall.
The new MLB owners proposal includes an 82-game proposal that will start in early July without fans in the stand. The games would take place in home ballparks featuring teams in the National League and the American League of the same regional division. This means more games against the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland, Indians, Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, and Kansas City Royals. Other rule changes being explored include a universal designated hitter, extra roster spots and playoff seeds, and doubleheaders. A second spring training would take place as soon as next month.
The new plan is subject to MLB players approval.
