The Latest: Cuomo can envision baseball in NYC this summer

The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

___

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he can envision baseball games being played without fans this summer at Yankee Stadium and the Mets’ Citi Field.

“Be creative. Try to figure it out,” the Democrat said during his briefing Sunday. “But if players could get paid more than staying home and owners would get some revenue versus total shutdown, why not? I’d love to watch.”

Cuomo says he has spoken with owners of professional sports teams, but he did not identify which ones. They would have to make the economics work without gate revenue but with broadcast revenue.

For those who wish for a space to discuss the effects of the current situation on baseball- please keep all general discussion in the other thread, as I will curate this should you do otherwise.

Let’s just pretend like you don’t know who I am.
Believe it if you say that you’re not a fan.
