Major League Baseball finally (almost, at least) has some clarity about whether or not it will return. After months of unnecessary bickering, the owners voted to impose a 60-game season upon the players, as per prior agreements, setting the stage for pitchers to get back on the mound starting around July 24th.
That is the targeted date, anyway, though there remains a couple of hurdles that the league must jump through. One of them is to require the players sign off on a safety and health protocol, and the other is that they need to arrive at their home stadiums on July 1st to begin training. For those that have been following this, quite frankly, bizarre situation for a while, you will note that the players just rejected a 60-game plan. However, the owners (and players, too) have had enough of negotiating and have now decided to go down this path. It may create ill will down the line, but it does solve the issue of getting them back on the field relatively soon. For the most part, we can all be thankful for that.
