Ex-MLB Player Reports Starting Date For Season, But Insiders Quickly Refute Them


Baseball fans went through a roller coaster of emotions Monday night.

The 2020 Major League Baseball season is suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but increasing optimism reportedly has been circulating around the league that the campaign will be played in some capacity.

So when former big leaguer Trevor Plouffe fired off this tweet Monday evening, fans were pretty excited.

This does actually line up with some of the reporting that’s been done, much of which indicates MLB is eyeing an Independence Day/early July Opening Day.

However, a couple MLB writers were quick to throw cold water on Plouffe’s tweet.

It seems the league is keeping all of its options open right now, and what Plouffe reported very well may be one of their ideal scenarios — even if it isn’t confirmed yet.

Anyhoo, these types of reports are becoming increasingly common, so maybe that’s a sign that we are, if nothing else, getting closer to a decision of some kind being made. After all, MLB reportedly is hoping to have a plan in place by the end of May.
