Austin Hedges was excited.
“Over the last 48 hours, it really feels like we’re getting some stuff done,” the Padres catcher said Monday afternoon. “I really do believe we’re to a point where a decision will be made. … I feel very confident it’s going to happen.”
Hedges, the Padres’ representative for the Major League Baseball Players Association, participated Monday in a conference call with other player reps in which they talked about MLB’s proposal to play an 82-game season beginning in early July.
“It sounds like we’re finally coming up with something, at least making decisions,” he said.
