The Major League Baseball Players Association has reportedly come to an agreement.
According to the reports, players agreed to go to training camp on July 1, with a planned Opening Day for July 24. The season will consist of 60 games, and will end in September – which is less than half of the typical games played in a usual season.
The post-season will come to an end by October, which coincides with Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s recommendation that the sport “avoids” the colder late fall and winter season.
“Players would receive the full prorated share of their salaries — about 37 percent of their full-season salaries and around $1.5 billion total…players would not receive forgiveness on the $170 million salary advance they received as part of the March agreement and would get no money from the postseason,” ESPN reported.
The exact health and safety protocols have yet to be determined, according to CBS Sports.
