MLB Players’ Vote on 2020 Season Delayed

MLB Players’ Vote on 2020 Season Delayed

Yesterday’s vote on a 60-game Major League Baseball season was delayed – meaning no agreement on anything yet.  Baseball and its players’ union have been negotiating for nearly six weeks.  Entering the weekend there was hope a deal was near.  In addition to the small number of games, the 2020 season would be unique in other ways.

There would be extensive health protocols for everyone involved, not just players.  Rosters would be larger and teams would use a universal designated hitter.  Playoffs would be expanded to 16 teams after a regular season with a  regional schedule – for instance, pitting teams in the American League Central Division against teams in the National League Central.
