Dodgers: Orel Hershiser Encouraged By the Direction of MLB Season Rumors

The Dodgers’ legend feels good about the potential of the 2020 season.



It seems every day that a 2020 Dodgers’ season is going to happen. With every new report and every new piece of news, the anticipation to get games going grows for fans. It’s just a matter of the details surrounding the schedule and the setting of games that need to be figured out before the next step.

The Dodgers’ Orel Hershiser feels good about the way things are trending, and he talked about the direction MLB is heading with SportsNet LA’s John Hartung

Well, it’s starting to feel like baseball could happen…I think now that all of a sudden you see the world starting to open up a little bit, baseball can get a little bit more specific about what we can do. And I really think that it feels better when you know that you might play in your own stadium. You might have a little more travel not staying in the confines of one state, so it starts to sound a little bit more legit. 

Baseball has been rumored to be discussing every possible plan that any person could ever begin to think of. Playing baseball in Arizona was a plan. Playing in Arizona and in Florida was another consideration. And playing in three different states was the third report to come out. But the latest report suggests that players will be allowed to play in their home stadiums, depending on how the health situation of each state shapes out. This could be good or bad for the Dodgers.

The Governor of California has already said a few times that he does not anticipate sports in California allowing fans into stadiums until at least the end of the year. There were several instances where he suggested that sports as a whole wouldn’t be a viable option in California for 2020. So if that truly was the case, the Dodgers would be one of the teams likely to have a new home in Arizona for this season. That, of course, all depends on the next few weeks in California. 

Regardless, hope for a Dodgers’ season is the highest it has been since baseball shut down in early March.
