As the nation continues to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the professional sports scene has been temporarily put on hold.
Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, originally scheduled for Thursday, was pushed back by a minimum of eight weeks. While play could conceivably resume in the middle of May, many believe June is a more realistic timeline.
The coronavirus outbreak has also led to a slew of additional delays and cancellations in the baseball world. The 2020 National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Classic Weekend events, which would have taken place on May 22-24, were called off.
Renovations at Dodger Stadium are also proceeding at a slower pace.
