The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) informed the league Tuesday that players will comply with the league’s imposed outline for a 2020 season. Players will report for another version of “spring” training on July 1, and the league’s imposed 60-game season will start July 24.  The two sides are still working to finalize health and safety protocols, per Bowden, and there has not yet been an official announcement from the league.

MLB owners voted unanimously Monday night to have commissioner Rob Manfred impose a season. In a statement, Manfred had requested on Monday night that the players respond by 5 p.m. ET so that the league could proceed with scheduling that imposed season.

The league is expected to wrap up its regular season by the end of September and its postseason — which will feature its usual, 10 teams — by the end of October.
