Looks like baseball is back!

Atlanta Braves v Baltimore Orioles

While there has been no formal announcement, multiple reports suggest that the MLBPA has informed Major League Baseball that players will report to Spring Training 2.0 on July 1. Both sides are apparently still finalizing health and safety protocols but things seem to be progressing well in that regard.

The league had asked for an answer on whether players could report by July 1 and for the union to sign off on health protocols by Tuesday at 5 p.m. However, that deadline came and went without an announcement. It appears that both sides may still be busy hammering out the final details on the health issues.

The regular season will be slated to begin on July 24 and will include a 60-game season that is played over 66 days. We will add more details as they become available.

UPDATE - The league and players have resolved all remaining issues and players will report to camp by July 1.
