MLB Owners agreed in a vote to hold a 60 game season this year. The owners voted on a 60 game plan hours after the Players Union rejected an earlier proposal with 60 games and an expanded postseason. However, the agreement still awaits approval from the Players Union, who has to agree to two conditions by 5 pm today: whether they can report to training camp by July 1 and if they will agree to the health and safety protocols proposed. The Players Union has delayed voting to look into data related to testing for Covid-19 due to virus outbreaks at several training camps in Arizona and Florida. The league plans to play games through Sept. 27, making it a packed season.
