If not for COVID-19, Thursday, March 26 would have been Opening Day. Yeah, so that didn’t exactly happen and we’re still pretty bummed about it. However, here’s some good news: The latest reports are that Major League Baseball will return this summer. Consider us stoked. Now for the so-so news: as of right now, the important details remain unknown. Ugh, right?
Even though pro baseball is coming back, chances are high (like 96.7%) it won’t be like any season in recent memory. There will be less games and maybe no crowds, necessary precautions the MLB must take to keep players, coaches, staff and fans safe during the pandemic.
Less baseball doesn’t have to mean no baseball. Need to fill the baseball-diamond shaped void in your heart? Here are some things baseball fans like you can do besides watching Major League Baseball!
