Let's play baseball finally!
The Major League Players Association released a short statement confirming that they have worked out their current issues including health concerns involving COVID-19 with the owners.
"All remaining issues have been resolved and players are reporting to training camp," the statement said.
MLB players will report to training camp at their home ballparks next week due to spikes of coronavirus in Florida and Arizona.
The imposed regular season will be 60 games and will start likely on July 24. The plan is for teams to play 40 games in their division and 20 games interleague with their geographic counterpart according to MLB insider Jon Heyman.

It is correct and fair and wise to note that the pandemic is going to remain a threat to derail things. It is serious, and no "plan" can ever fully mitigate the risk.— Bleacher Nation (@BleacherNation) June 24, 2020
