Cubs sends email to their fans about the lockout
|Tuesday, March 1, 2022, 9:54 PM- -|
The Chicago Cubs sent out an email to their diehard fans after news of the continued lockout on Tuesday.
Major League Baseball has yet to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA).
Since it is important to have four weeks of Spring Training for players to safely prepare for the season, Opening Day of the 2022 MLB season, previously scheduled for March 31, is being delayed. The first two series have been removed from the schedule. Additionally, MLB has notified all clubs that Spring Training would not begin sooner than March 12.
MLB is committed to finding common ground with the MLBPA to reach an agreement that avoids further harm to the 2022 season and strengthens and grows the game we all love. We will continue to provide you with updates as developments occur. In the meantime, please visit www.mlb.com/update.
Thank you for your continued patience and support.
The Chicago Cubs
