    MLB players agree to report for 60-game 2020 season; Opening Day to be July 24

    The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) informed the league on Tuesday that players will comply with the league's imposed outline for a 2020 season. Players will report for another version of "spring" training on July 1, and the league's imposed 60-game season will start July 24, CBS Sports HQ's Jim Bowden reported Tuesday. The two sides are still working to finalize health and safety protocols, per Bowden, and there has not yet been an official announcement from the league.

    MLB owners voted unanimously Monday night to have commissioner Rob Manfred impose a season. In a statement, Manfred had requested on Monday night that the players respond by 5 p.m. ET so that the league could proceed with scheduling that imposed season.

    The league and players failed to reach a modified agreement for a 2020 season after weeks of negotiations. Those talks stalled when it came to the length of the season and the financial compensation players would receive. The union's ability to file a grievance against the league, which could result in a substantial cash windfall, also became a matter of importance later in the talks.

    Some, if not most training camps in Fl and Az are shut down anyway..
    Baseball is my first love but the face of the game has become a loose stool...

    i will take it but wish it was at least 81 games. 60 is hard to take seriously.

    great for betting though.

    There's no deal yet because there's no safety protocol agreement.

    Players had to accept the monetary agreement as it was bargained collectively in March....just as the owners would be liable for a grievance for not offering up this agreement in lue of the other proposals.

    Any reason to think that pitching won't totally dominate early?
    I'm not betting at all but it stands to reason with bats being dormant for so long..

    can't wait to hear what a Alex Verdugo homerun sounds like without all those annoying Boston fans in the background.

    hate Boston. my son lives there though. I buy him ice cream.

    good question

    I would think the book would want to limit possible liabilities and have a new set of numbers for the new season, based upon if certain players opted in or out

    MLB players the biggest primadonnas in all of sports.

    Stand in the field, get a couple balls hit your way a game, go to bat about 3 times, and think you've done something.

    Most overpaid athletes ever.
