MLB announces cancellation of Spring Training games and sets new date for Play ball

Major League Baseball announced that all spring training games canceled through March 7, as ESPN journalist Jesse Rogers was among those who broadcast. MLB had previously announced the cancellation of all exhibition games through March 4.

Today’s news Friday is little more than a formality. It became more and more evident as the conversations between MLB and the Players Association dragged on with little progress during the week that a new collective bargaining agreement would not be put in place for games to start next Saturday:

The first games to start now are Tuesday, March 8, and that’s contingent on a new CBA being finalized for next monday february 28.

Discussions between the league and the MLBPA continued for the fifth day in a row. Meetings lasted into the afternoon, and the parties reportedly made progress on one issue, though one of lesser comparative importance than others.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and all Mexican baseball in general. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins. Degree in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
