MLB proposed a delay to the start of the 2021 season (largely due to COVID-19). Gianmarco Castronovo shares what the Major League Baseball Players Association have said in response:

Spring training is now slated for February 17, with an Opening Day set for April 1.  However, this was not what the MLB had in mind… Initially, the MLB proposed a delay of the 2021 season.  But after bitter back and forth, the Major League Baseball Players Association completely rejected the proposal.  Holding true to letting the games begin on time, as scheduled, the Players Association demanded that the MLB follow suit.  Lucky for baseball fans, like Gianmarco Castronovo, the season will start according to the original schedule.
