Cubs' Jason Heyward on delaying MLB season: ‘We've just got to be safe'


Major League Baseball’s Opening Day is scheduled for March 26, but it looks like the league will suspend play indefinitely to acquire more information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

A lot of money is involved in MLB, but we’re in uncharted territory here. At the end of the day, baseball is a children’s game, and the league knows there’s no such thing as being overly cautious.

On Thursday, Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward was candid about suspending games until the pandemic slows down and we have more information.

Health and safety are most important. Putting the season on hold before it starts is the best thing for players, fans and everyone in between.
