No baseball butt until at least May as Major League Baseball has postponed opening day due to coronavirus guidance that recommends limiting events of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks.
Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred issued the announcement after discussing the issue with officials with all 30 teams.
“The opening of the 2020 regular season will be pushed back in accordance with that guidance,” read the statement. “The clubs remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins.”
Opening day had been scheduled for March 26.
Last Thursday, MLB hit pause in regard to the rest of the spring training schedule.
