Here’s the Pitch
MLB Owners came up with a proposal to get the season started. Under the plan, the season will begin on July 4th weekend, with a brief spring training starting in June. The season will consist of 82 games, with the Designated Hitter expanded to the National League. The framework calls on players to share revenue, as games will likely be played without fans. That could be a tough sell to the MLB Players’ Association, who must agree to any deal. There will likely be extensive negotiations before any agreement is made as players and owners face the reality of sports in the Covid-19 world.
