Ladies and gentlemen, we have breaking news on SportsCastr.
The MLB owners have approved a plan to start the season late, and this just went through about an hour ago.
So this is breaking news.
So let me read you this article.
This is from Fox News and I'll be owners approved.
Plan to start Corona virus Delayed 2020 season report Here's what it says.
Major league baseball owners reportedly approved a plan that could start the coronavirus state late season around the Fourth of July in ballparks without fans, spring training could start to in early to mid June, and the National League would use a designated hitter during the 2020 season, according to multiple sources.
So, over the history of baseball, we've never really seen a designated hitter in the NL.
But we will this season just something very interesting that they're changing up.
Each team would play an 82 game regular season.
So about 80 eaves less than a normal season and regular game season, with the most teams playing games in their own divisions and interleague not going past regional matchups.
So like ales East versus N.
L East and L Central.
There is an essential and ale West first ****yst, So this is what they have approved.
So this is not the planet we thought, which was West East in Central.
So it was not like we thought, This is the normal normal.
Why would be the postseason would expand a 14 teams by doubling the number of wild cards in each really before.
So they're expanding the postseason you by four teams, which is going to increase the probability that your team's going to make the playoffs such as the Red Sox.
This now gives me faith that the Red Sox could indeed make the playoffs the postseason.
Like I said, it would expand a 14 PM according to Fox.
Business is Charl, you're Speroni.
Teams will have a choice of spring training in their own stadiums or in their usual venue and for in Florida or Arizona.
So this is very interesting.
Instead, off playing in a normal spring training ballpark, they have the opportunity to play in their own ballpark, which is very interesting.
According to The Associated Press, teams would prefer play at the regular season ballparks, but would not be opposed to switching spring training sites or neutral stance it medical and government approves cannot be granted for home prices taking gate ago 99 from the brackets.
So obviously this has to be passed by the health of MLB Player Association has to be a passed by the players.
I believe it also by the White House so advanced under 1% of MLB employees test positive for the virus antibodies The Toronto Blue Jays may have to play gives at their spring training ballpark into Nuta, Florida While the 2020 MLB All Star Game set for Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles would be next, uh, wallet traveling in testing of players were immediately outlined, Fox Business reported.
The travel protocol is expected to be intense.
Teams would propose that players were receiving a percentage of the 2020 salaries based on revenues and will be received during the season.
Is likely to be one of the most Contras X aspects off the proposal during the negotiations.
So this means that we're going to see a lot of games on TV.
It also means that there's gonna be a lot of people watching these things on TV s take you Michael Sports for during the broadcast.
Um, the players, You will not have to agree to the reported proposal, and it would also need clearance.
Yeah, Like I said from the White House, a decision from the MLB p A is likely later this week or next week, according to Fox Business.
So this means that we will be seen sports, maybe in about a month.
We might see you seeing spring training in about a month.
So think about that.
That's what I said earlier today.
MLB could be the first thing to reopen, and it looks like they could be here.
So now I'm gonna switch over to another ah website here.
And this is, um but Boston Globe, this is about 38 minutes ago.
It would be great. Yes, it would.
Okay, I'm not gonna pay $1 a year.
Okay? Never mind.
Maybe not the Boston Globe, but, um, yeah, let's just go, um, to the Associated Press to your press here or ESPN.
Rather was go for ESPN.
Owners approved Emily season proposal start for July Stars.
Most players and union prep stow away in major League baseball owners.
This is Jeff Hassan.
Visually, baseball owners approved a proposal that Commissioner Rob Manfred plans to present to the players thirst Tuesday on a return to play scenario that aims that baseball back home stadiums.
But if you Situation told ESPN, the meeting between MLB and MLB Players Association on Tuesday will set the stage for what both parties expect to be.
Ah, continuous negotiation while I'm a B could benefit long term from this being the first American teams for to return amid the Corona virus pandemic.
Will a job the logistics of starting the season remain convoluted and require player supports? Thank you.
I say you very much.
Um, money is that oh owners fearful of deep financial losses with the fan free stadiums, agreed in a conference call Monday afternoon.
The plan includes a 50 50 revenue spit with their players, sources told ESPN.
Because MLB is alone on cap team, Sport in the United States has never had a straight revenue split between part of the Games finances.
The MLB Player Association is almost certain certain to reject that.
Elements of the proposal encounter that the March agreement between the parties agree, uh, parties guarantee to player poor paraded portion of their salaries, depending on the number of games played.
The ability to strike a financial deal could mean the difference between a baseball season and one that is cancelled.
So this is telling you right here.
You made my day by telling me that, yes, we might have baseball.
I mean, this is very unlikely that we won't, but this is really promising rare.
But right here, the ability to strike a financial deal could mean the difference between the baseball season and one that is cancelled.
So that's gonna be the biggest aspect of it is trying to get it.
This could be with all exits.
Just try to split pay.
And I'm pretty sure half the players in the I'll be kids put their play and pay.
So it's really about the players being willing toe really resume season concerns about the league's handling of testing, insurance, a safe, a safe, A working, ensuring a C S safe, a working environment as possible will be issue brushed by players on Tuesday and becoming days, sources told ESPN.
Washington Nationals pitcher sip Sean through Little took to social media on Monday to set that table as the sides of negotiating believe will continue to seek approval from the government entitled These ***ually and tidies.
How many people could be their none.
So there will be no people in the stance as a side of negotiation.
The league will continue to seek approval from the government and tidies to support the medical community for a potential return.
Ah, here is will be Sean Kenobi. Do little.
So obviously Sean doodle there with me.
But it feels like we've zoomed past the most important aspect of any MLB restart plan.
Health precautions for players, family staff stayed and workers in the workforce it would require to resume a season.
Here are some things I'll be looking for in the pope proposal.
And here is this.
He did this on Twitter.
So you got the trainers.
You get the players, you've got every everybody there like the the camera, man.
So, um, I'm pretty sure that is it for that one.
Actually, there might be more stuff.
Among the other vital part points, including the Post P posts proposal and expansion off the playoff teams from 10 to 14.
So now we're seeing 14 teams in the postseason at 82 game season.
The use of home stadiums in areas that of local and state governmental approve mint A so called spring training to point all that begins in June, with the season set for early July, a universal designated hitter.
That means we're going to see a designator hitter in the East and in the West and in the central.
And I'll, uh, and all a nail.
We're going to see it everywhere.
Geographical schedules, in which teams play Onley in division opponents and interleague opponents in a similar area.
For example, the American League Central teams by only a central on national leagues on Central.
We are sick case of her for during the broadcast a 30 man roster with a taxi squad that would have an upward ah, 50 players available.
So I heard this earlier today that one of the proposals waas This was for a proposal that they were talking about.
Once a player is like taking out of the gate, and I have to just leave and leave the dog, that's something interesting.
The playoff expansion, which had been floated or brown before the Corona virus pandemic, hit when increased revenue as it shrivels in other areas.
Teams estimate that upward of 40% of revenue comes from ticket sales and other gate related income.
So that's being taken away now.
The season could start of Fourth of July weekend with gays around the country and hold stadiums.
Can you imagine that for the dry? We're watching baseball with teams playing the home stadiums.
Yes, that is what they are aiming for here.
The Inter divisional heavy schedule would be to limit travel, with teams possibly traveling to bus to nearby cities.
Spring creating likely will not include any games as teams get ready for the season in their home stadiums.
The 50 player available would be a mixture of major the years in top my replace with the monitory season in jeopardy.
So they're gonna include both, Um, very interesting.
Earlier, we heard the H L was canceling their season.
So my really players are in on a little bit of a tough situation here for MLB.
But they're straying.
They're trying to get him in there, so it's very interesting.
Fourth of July weekend, you're looking for something to do.
Watch baseball it because it will be there.
That's what we're looking at right now and the last thing I wanted to check in with Waas.
Well, here's for the win.
So let's see what they've got here and will be owners approved plan to get baseball underway, but a lot of hard questions remain.
Albion has approved the plan to get baseball underway in July, but a lot of her questions still need to be answered.
Um, so the impact of Kobe 19 on people is still being understood.
But early research to just that.
The effects are long lasting, even for people who are appear asymptomatic.
Even with protocols in place, the risk of infection long term effects could be high, do Little said.
Do Little called out the need for new MLB proposal dressed things like testing, quarantining and what happens if a player just positive? Among the questions do Little says players should ask is, will there be a modifications made to the club s other facilities? 2% to spread his thank you Sports boy wouldn't look for on the broadcast.
So, like asking the questions.
What does happen if a player in a clubhouse gets let's see somebody, God forbid or hopefully not gets it inside one of the clubhouses, like the Red Sox or something.
Then what happens after that? Like there's been talking that you might not half to necessarily get rid off the whole the whole thing, like the whole ever team like, But what would you do? I think that the most the smartest thing to do is shuffle league out for maybe like a week.
Depending on what happens, I'm guessing, and then I stay in case of her for the phone figure for 50 ticks, I will hit you with the follow up.
But then what happens after? Like things start to become a little interesting.
Like, let's take, for example, just just That's hard to say.
Let's take, for example, like if someone in the Red Sox were to get it and like you can maybe should lead down for a week and then whoever they played, make sure everybody is safe.
Maybe the Red Sox games or postpone for a little bit.
I don't know. That's what they have to do.
So do little said, Um, researches stomach over giant.
He may cause issues with male Former pressure, not even in younger Ran allegedly differ so there.
There's a lot to talk about here.
And then, um so do a little had a lot of stuff to say.
Hopefully, the stringent surge will be addressed in MLB's proposal.
First and foremost, number one.
What's the plan to ethnically acquire enough test to What's the protocol if a player, staff member or working contracts the virus we want to play and we want everyone to stay safe? So that's exactly right.
And he said, We don't have a vaccine yet.
We don't really have any effective anti viral treatments.
What happens if there's second wave? Hopefully being coming with both of proactive health plan focused on prevention and a reactor plant aimed at containment making longer broadcast.
All this Okay, yes.
So this is this broadcast is only gonna be about 15 minutes.
So we're only about one minute left because they just wanted to talk about mostly everything.
And I'll be talked about, like, obviously everything in South Korea going on trying to look at trying to basically just look at what MLB is doing.
And then, um, look at what Kubo's doing and then try and do exactly what they're doing.
What the Kubo is doing.
There's no fans allowed in the stadium.
Coaches were masked and apparently umpires are masked.
So they're trying to take what Korean baseball is doing because obviously the Korea had to deal with this pandemic and the trend.
Take what they've gone after this and where the right now, and try and do that same exact thing I think you look a year for during the broadcast.
So, um, I want to thank everybody for his breakfast.
I just want to look at one last thing with everybody with this breaking news segment here on SportsCastr.
Sports is the last thing.
Is baseball coming back? Here is the latest news on MLB player negotiation to restart season, obviously offences among more complicated, many complicated questions that need to be answered.
How will be players you played when were the big games play? When the season starts, how many years will be scheduled? Bowl rosters look like how the Posies were, so you've kind of answered this a little bit.
Now there's 14 postseason games now.
Obviously, there's going to be a lot of players in the clubhouse.
There's there's a lot off All Star Game in Los Angeles will likely be canceled for rob car teams in each league.
Ah, Universal D Each is possible under the plan and will be rough.
There's would expand from 0.
Players lately have an NFL practice squad like collection of minor leaks players to pull from again.
All this needs to be approved by the players union, so this is the only first step negotiating towards restarting him.
I'll be so if you like to look at any of this stuff.
Yahoo Sports, Fox News, ESPN, all that good stuff.
So here's Tim Brown commented this on Twitter.
Some numbers MLB would be wielding is that it heads into negotiations with pig personal skate and get related revenue cancer.
About 51% of local revenue and 40% of MLB's total revenue.
That's regular season, so that's where I out of this will start.
So obviously they're losing a lot of money because they get most of their money from the fans and from the people at the game.
There's not people at the game, so that's tough.
With the canceled spring training and everything, it's really tough to just get a grasp on when we will Cindy half fans back a game, so we really don't know.
But that's pretty much it breaking news here today.
It could be entertaining.
79 A magazine is really mental living TV.
Oh yeah, for sure Entertained seven million Middle.
That's also a big bonus to this.
All those who struggling horn to you mentally can also get ability or watch it on TV.
I think they're going to see a lot of people on TV, and MLB is going to be tough with the money.
That's really the financial standpoint from sports is really gonna kill a lot of the sports revenue stuff and the profit that they're getting out of this, especially for the players.
So thank you, everybody for joining this broadcast.
We had a big breaking news segment here today, with MLB owners approving the plan to start sees on the players association Health, White House, all that.
So, like I said, my NFC or A F C North predictions should be coming out later today at some point. That's my hope.
Um, at some point, we're going to get them out there so they get everybody for joining this broadcast and I'm Nathan signing off
