When MLB Baseball Is Coming Back

What is MLB baseball officially coming back? Best case scenario is April 2020. Worst case, at this stage, is unknown.

On Thursday, Major League Baseball announced that it would be delaying the beginning of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus.

Shortly thereafter, ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan appeared on the network and offered some insight on what all the recent announcements meant. Moreover, he also elaborated on when precisely the league would return to action.

“From everybody that I’ve spoken to – players, executives, officials – the answer is no. If there is baseball on April 9, something went really well across the country,” he said on Get Up.

“The expectation at this point is that we’re not going to see baseball until May.”

Again, this is a best case scenario. It assumes that the coronavirus curve flattens and that America gets a grip on the pandemic in a way other countries have not been able to.

If the best case scenario does not play out, we could be looking at life without baseball for a very, very long time.
