Major League Baseball apparently wants us to know that while there might be some truth to Jeff Passan’s report, it’s far from a sure thing.
Heads turned overnight Monday into Tuesday when the ESPN MLB insider reported the league was eyeing a plan that would start the 2020 regular season as soon as May and would result in games being played without fans in greater Phoenix.
Well, on Tuesday morning, MLB issued a response to the report.

It’s not too shocking the league decided to try and make clear this idea is in its infancy, and not one MLB is completely banking on.
