A month ago, it seemed that the 2020 MLB season was in jeopardy, as owners and the players union were far apart in their negotiations. Fortunately, the two sides came together and now we are on the precipice of a pandemic shortened 60 game regular season. We have been able to enjoy youth baseball and softball this summer plus amateur baseball, but the return of MLB is a welcoming sign for many.
There are chances we could see some fairly wild numbers once the regular season is done. Some speculate we could see batters hit over the 400 hundred threshold (not seen since Ted Williams did so in 1941). No matter what happens on the field, it will be a joyful sight for baseball enthusiasts during the pandemic. A pair of games is slated for Thursday night and then a full slate of games on Friday.
