MLB To Delay Opening Day Until Mid-May
Major League Baseball announced on Monday that they are pushing back Opening Day to Mid-May to follow the recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The CDC recommends that crowds of 50 people or fewer should be in effect for the next eight weeks because of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. The Mid-May time period goes along with that.
This will be the first time that the regular season will be delayed since 1995. That's when it was delayed until late April in the aftermath of the 1994 players strike.
