There Will Be Complications in Starting the MLB Season

There was an announcement on the ESPN site stating that the owners has a proposal that would start the MLB season on July 1 with each team playing 82 games against regional opponents.  Likely games will be played in empty stadiums.  There are two major concerns:

  • Safety - obviously there can not be 6 foot distancing within a game.  Only catchers will wear their traditional masks.  Will players, coaches, managers, umpires, trainers,  and other personnel have to be tested before each game for the Coronavirus?
  • Money - Salaries certainly can't be simply prorated by the number of games played.  Revenue will be greatly reduced with no fans in the stands.  Will greedy players prevent the current proposal from happening?
Let's hope for the best.
