How MLB players are reacting to potential quarantined season in Arizona

Major League Baseball was the talk of the sports world Tuesday after reports of a potential quarantined season staged entirely in Arizona surfaced.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan first reported that league and players’ union were focused on a plan that would see all 30 teams gather in Arizona to play out the 2020 season in empty stadiums. If the league and players come to an agreement, it could allow baseball to return as early as May.

Of course, there are many hurdles that will have to be cleared before that can become a reality. However, ESPN’s report suggests one of the biggest has already been cleared. Sources tell Passan that several high-ranking federal public health officials support the plan and believe the league could safely pull it off amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now the eyes and ears of baseball fans are turning to the players to gauge their reaction to what would be a season unlike any other in sports history.

A collection of perspectives on the latest proposal for baseball this season.
