Four weeks have passed since Major League Baseball delayed the start of the 2020 regular season due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and it has been two weeks since what would have been Opening Day.
If and when the season will begin remains unclear. MLB reportedly is considering staging Opening Day for all 30 teams in Arizona, with play potentially beginning as soon as May. MLB is also said to be considering division realignment utilizing the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues.
The need and willingness to adapt in order to hold a season is present, but that MLB is in this position caught Ross Stripling by surprise.
