MLB Hints at Possible Solution to Get Season Started Sans Fans

But can they pull it off logistically?

Now several weeks into our various degrees of isolation, sports fans are truly beginning to feel the bit empty void in their day.

Whether it’s checking the highlights on your phone before getting into bed at night, or waking up wondering how that west coast doubleheader turned out, Americans are jonesing for a little athletic competition.

Of course, thanks to the global pandemic that’s currently affecting a vast majority of the world, there is little to watch but bizarre pseudo-sport on ESPN8, “The Ocho”.
