Major League Baseball moves starting day Featured

(mlb.com/espn/ap) Major League Baseball pushed back opening day until mid-May at the earliest on Monday because of the new coronavirus recommendations from the federal government.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Sunday that gatherings of 50 people or more be canceled or postponed across the country for the next eight weeks.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch at Cardinals camp in Jupiter, Florida.

Baseballs commissioner added that the clubs remain committed to playing as many games as possible when the season begins. "We're not going to announce an alternate opening day at this point. We're going to have to see how things develop."

MLB called off the rest of the spring training schedule on Thursday and said opening day, which had been scheduled for March 26, was postponed for at least two weeks. Teams and players agree that two to four weeks of additional spring training will be needed before the regular season begins.
