Major League Baseball plans to implement 60-game season


Jerry Holt – Star Tribune

A 60-game Major League Baseball season now seems likely. A renewed spring training would start July 1; the Twins would hold theirs at Target Field.

Negotiations between Major League Baseball and its players began a month ago amid hopes that the game could save a barren sports summer. They ended Monday night with both sides hoping there is still time to save baseball.

Unable to agree with the players association on changes to the deal they struck in March, the 30 MLB teams "unanimously voted to proceed with the 2020 season" - under its terms anyway - the league said in a statement.

Once MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred formally implements a schedule, training camps could resume next week, and the 60th Opening Day in Twins history, according to several national reports, is likely to take place on or about July 24.
