Play Ball! ?!

Major League Baseball appears to be happening in 2020 after all. The shortened season, due to the coronavirus pandemic, will result in a maximum 60-game format. The A’s will report to Oakland for a summer version of Spring Training that is expected to take place at the Oakland Coliseum beginning on July 1. Opening Day will likely be on July 23 or 24. The A’s schedule will be limited solely to teams in the AL West (Angels, Astros, Mariners, and Rangers) and National League West (D-backs, Dodgers, Giants, Padres, and Rockies) for the regular season. The expectation is that the A’s will play 40 games against divisional opponents and 20 games against NL West teams. All games will feature a designated hitter, as MLB is instituting a universal DH as part of the health and safety protocols being put in place for the 2020 season. I’m pretty sure fans will not be allowed at any of the games, even in a socially-distanced fashion.

Pac-12 Bowl Games

Utes vs Ducks

@GoDucks #GoDucks @pac12 #RoseBowl

After last night’s win by Cal, the Pac-12 is sitting at 2-2 in bowls thus far. Washington had a big win against ranked Boise State. Today will feature games by Arizona State and Utah. Tomorrow, Oregon will wrap things up in the Rose Bowl against Wisconsin.

I’ve never been to the Rose Bowl, but I almost made it into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum a couple days ago for what would have been my first-ever NFL game (and the Rams final game at the venue). Alas, the family had no interest so we went to The Getty Center instead.

Happy birthday, Rob Caggiano!
