Putting all 30 teams in the Phoenix area this season and playing in empty ballparks was among the ideas discussed Monday by Major League Baseball and the players’ association.

    MLB season could go until Christmas
    MLB - If the final pitch of the 2020 baseball season comes closer to Christmas than Halloween, that's fine with the players. Major League Baseball owners ratified a 17-page agreement with the union on Friday in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, with players willing to extend the season as long as needed to cover as close to a full schedule as possible. Even if it involves neutral sites in warm-weather cities and domes. Even if it involves playing in empty ballparks. Even if it involves lots of day-night doubleheaders.
    Ballparks remain empty on 'opening day'
    MLB - MLB ballparks will remain eerily empty on 'opening day'. There will be no hot dogs on the grill, no beer on tap, no vendors in the stands selling peanuts and Cracker Jack. The shiny new stadium deep in the heart of Texas will still be waiting for its first Rangers game. No fantasy baseball, no DFS, and most importantly to baseball bettors, no money lines, totals, or run lines to bet on as we wait to get the "all clear" from Government officials.
    MLB delays opening day to at least mid-May
    MLB - Major League Baseball pushed back opening day until mid-May at the earliest on Monday because of the new coronavirus after the federal government recommended restricting events of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred made the announcement following a conference call with executives of the 30 teams.
