MLB Spring Training operations suspended
|Friday, March 13, 2020, 7:37 PM-|
After an in-person meeting with MLBPA officials in Arizona, Major League Baseball announced today that Spring Training camps will be suspended, effective immediately. Major League players can elect to return home, remain in their Spring Training cities, or return to their Club’s home city. This step is in the best interests of players, employees and the communities who host Spring Training.
MLB will continue to monitor ongoing events and undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts. We send our best wishes to all the individuals and communities who have been impacted by coronavirus.
Have heard that most Cubs players will be remaining in Arizona for the time being. At end of month, could relocate to Chicago/Wrigley for training. Makes sense, since some players have spring housing expiring at end of month.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) March 13, 2020
