Opening of regular season to be pushed back
Monday, March 16, 2020
Today Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. conducted a conference call with the 30 Clubs of Major League Baseball. Following last night's newly updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) restricting events of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks, the opening of the 2020 regular season will be pushed back in accordance with that guidance.
MLB will keep fans updated on decisions regarding plans for the 2020 schedule in the weeks ahead. The Clubs remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins. We will continue to monitor ongoing events and undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts, and urge all baseball fans to follow suit. MLB extends its best wishes to all the individuals and communities who have been impacted by the coronavirus.
When will the 2020 season start?
We don’t know yet. We do know the opening of the 2020 regular season will follow the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which, on March 15, recommended that no gatherings with 50 or more people take place over the next eight weeks.
Will the 2020 season be condensed, or how will it will be impacted?
Neither the start date or length of the 2020 season has been determined at this time. The Texas Rangers will keep you and all our fans up-to-date on the latest news from MLB at texasrangers.com.
