When Will We Hear: PLAY BALL!

Bronx, NY: Our closest professional baseball parks, Yankee and Mets stadiums might be closed, but there is a lot of talk about the possibility of having some baseball in them by July. This will happen only if the Players, through their union, the Players Association and the owners through Mayor League Baseball come to an agreement. Aside from the safety concerns the more delicate issue that seems to be preventing an agreement is, you guessed it, $$$. What profit will the owners expect to get from a shortened season without fans in the stadium to spend money and how much would they have to pay the players? In other words, who’s getting paid and how much for a shortened season?

We at Latino Sports are doing what we can to keep baseball in the minds of our followers and that is why we are continuing with our annual LatinoMVP awards. This year we are proudly presenting our 30th annual awards. This pandemic has created a challenge on presenting the awards to our 2019 winners, but adversity also can develop creativity. Thanks to the support of MLB we are communicating with all the winning players teams and working out the details of presenting the awards. We will keep you informed.
