Clayton Kershaw says possible December World Series would be a ‘little risky’

Clayton Kershaw believes Major League Baseball would be taking a risk if it pushed the World Series beyond Thanksgiving due to the on-going coronavirus shutdown.

In a radio interview this week, the Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander explained why he feels there’s a deadline that should not be crossed when discussing potential options to extend the 2020 campaign.
