The 2020 MLB season was unlike any that we have ever seen in the history of the sport. The lack of fans alone is enough to make it seem very odd, but adding in all of the other new factors made it completely unprecedented. The added daily testing, constant risk of COVID-19 breakouts, and time spent away from family were just a few of the obstacles that teams faced all year.
Unfortunately, the 2021 MLB season could potentially start off in a very similar fashion. Teams still have no idea if they’ll get to play all 162 games or if it will once again be cut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Even with a possible vaccine on the horizon, MLB isn’t sure when fans will be able to return to games. So instead of guessing, the league is looking to the fans for help. Major League Baseball recently surveyed fans asking what conditions would make them feel comfortable returning to ballgames in 2021.
MLB fans were also asked when they anticipated when sporting events will be able to have live audiences, as well as asking what percentage of tickets should be sold. Overall, the league just wanted to get an idea of how many fans would feel okay going to games next season.
With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that MLB has no idea at this point what the 2021 season will consist of. There is so much that relies on the ability of teams to host fans, so it’s hard to confirm anything until that detail is hammered out.
