Rob Manfred Insists MLB Season Will Continue, Despite Positive COVID-19 Tests

Major League Baseball is in a sticky situation, with multiple teams reporting multiple positive COVID-19 tests in the last few days.

But the league isn’t giving up, at least not yet.

Several members of the Miami Marlins, Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals organizations have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, forcing the league to postpone several games to protect player and staff safety. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred, however, thinks the show still can go on despite the circumstances.

MLB officially resumed play Thursday, July 23. Whether they’ll make it past Week 3 remains to be seen.
