Padres’ Hedges ‘very confident’ MLB season will be played

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.
