With many sports planning and making moves to return to action in whatever limited manner that they can to save some revenue and give us all a source of entertainment we’ve greatly missed over the last couple months, Major League Baseball is now up to bat.

The league announced some parameters to return to the sport come July, with details about the revenue split and how that will be allocated still being negotiated.

The MLB has since moved to outline some safety proposals in regards to how games would be conducted and how they’d attempt to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 for the duration of the season.

The incomplete, yet still lengthy, document highlights things such as the capacity to process up to 10,000 tests for the virus on a weekly basis if needed, prohibiting high fives, fist bumps, and spitting, which for some odd reason, baseball players are very fond of.

The list also mandates that players and personnel not active in the game would need to sit in the stands 6 feet apart, players wouldn’t be allowed to socialize with opponents, balls will be recycled often, and teams discouraged from showering at the facility or using any kind of ride-sharing trip afterwards.

With all of these cumbersome, tedious measures being implemented, if you’re a player you can’t help but ask, why are we even bothering?

Teams have been prompted to respond with their input by May 22nd, and further decisions and adjustments will be made in the following weeks as we come closer to needing to make a call.
