MLB owners and the MLB players union appear to once again be at odds about the start of the upcoming 2021 season. USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reports that MLB team owners and the players union disagree about whether the start of the 2021 season should be pushed back.
On the owner’s side, they want players and tier 1 personnel to receive the COVID-19 vaccination prior to reporting to Arizona and Florida spring training sites. With the roll out of the vaccine just getting underway, it’s unlikely that all players and team staff will be vaccinated by the beginning of spring training and now team officials are requesting a potential May start to the 2021 season.
On the players’ side, they’re fully expecting to begin spring training on time with a full 162-game slate of games to follow. We discuss Bob Nightengale’s report and what lies ahead between MLB owners and the players union. Plus, will MLB allow fans at games in 2021?
