The health and safety of our fans, players and associates is our top priority. In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Major League Baseball (MLB) today announced its decision to cancel remaining Spring Training games and delay the start of the 2020 regular season by at least two weeks.
Major League Soccer has extended the team training moratorium through, and including, Friday, April 24. MLS training facilities remain closed to all players and staff with the exception of players requiring medical treatment or rehabilitation, under the direction of the team medical staff, that cannot be performed from the safety of their residence.
As we all know, Opening Day at the Friendly Confines is truly special. Considered an annual family reunion and unofficial holiday by many, the return of Cubs baseball means we’ve weathered another Chicago winter, welcomed the arrival of spring and are ready to embrace new beginnings. While this still holds true, today’s Opening Day is unlike any other we’ve experienced.
