IT’S HAPPENING: THERE WILL BE BASEBALL

Chicago Cubs

It’s happening. At times it seemed impossible. And then obviously likely. And then impossible again. Often all on the same day.

But it’s finally happening. The sides have agreed on health and safety protocols, and with a 60-game season implemented by the owners under the March Agreement with the players, we can FINALLY say: there will be baseball.

To be sure, the pandemic will always threaten the season. So much can happen that might sink the season before or after it begins. The league and its players could only ever get as far as they finally got today: a firm, final, and official plan to actually start the 2020 MLB season. Some of the timeline here, some of the miscellaneous rules expectations here.

There will be time for more questions and concerns and uncertainty. But for tonight, I celebrate.
