CLEVELAND, Ohio — Major League Baseball may have a startup plan for the 2020 season, the NBA is allowing individual team practice facilities to open with social distancing guidelines in place and the NFL recently released their full 2020 schedule as if the coronavirus will be tamed by September.
The MLB plan still has to be approved by the players’ union, but it would probably start the season in early July, in ballparks with no fans.
Even though Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley feel basketball should be scrapped for the season, the NBA is still making up its mind on the matter.
Unlike MLB and the NBA, the NFL continues to forge ahead with its 2020 season showing little respect for the coronavirus. This despite warnings that the virus can’t be truly managed until there is a vaccine. A vaccine that doesn’t exist right now and may not exist for several months.
