Gov. Newsom Says Pro Baseball Can 'Move Forward" in California

Well - this is good news

From LA Times

Major League Baseball would like to start the season the first week of July. On the first business day after the league released a67-page protocolfor handling health and safety issues, the governors of California,New YorkandTexasall said teams would be welcome to play games in their states.

Games would not be open to fans, at least for the first part of the season.


At his press conference Monday, Newsom said: “Pro sports, in that first week or so of June, without spectators, and modifications, and very prescriptive conditions, also can begin to move forward.”

The MLB plan, still subject to negotiation with the players’ union, calls for training camp to begin in mid-June, either at a team’s home ballpark or at its spring training site.
