Once upon a time …

Lotte Giants male cheerleader (Busan, South Korea)

… there were fans at professional sporting events around the world, and they weren’t even socially distanced.

Happy birthday, Brian Fuentes!

Derek Jeter was going into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame today

Derek Jeter with home run #247 to leadoff the game

But with Covid, the induction ceremony has been moved to next year.

Today’s photo comes from his 247th home run back in 2012. He hit this in the first inning as the leadoff batter.

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.

Happy birthday, Chris Coghlan!
