Major League Baseball gets a sponsor for its pandemic-necessitated summer camp

Major League Baseball today announced some of the unique features that will be a part of the 2020 regular season, including health and safety protocols that will impact play on the field as well as revised operating procedures away from it.  Summer Camp presented by Camping World begins on Wednesday, July 1st, the mandatory reporting date.

I honestly can’t think of anything that encapsulates the Rob Manfred Era of Major League Baseball better than this. Something like 90% of Americans couldn’t pick Mike Trout out of a lineup, but MLB’s marketing department had the hustle to get a company to pay to sponsor an event that’s only happening because of a global pandemic.

Jesus. This is absurd.

I'll be fascinated to see just how many such revenue streams the league opens after crying poverty for a couple months.
