Stan Kasten: Majority Of Dodger Stadium Renovations ‘Ready To Go’ As Dodgers Comply With CDC

As the nation continues to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the professional sports scene has been temporarily put on hold.

Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, originally scheduled for Thursday, was pushed back by a minimum of eight weeks. While play could conceivably resume in the middle of May, many believe June is a more realistic timeline.

The coronavirus outbreak has also led to a slew of additional delays and cancellations in the baseball world. The 2020 National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Classic Weekend events, which would have taken place on May 22-24, were called off.

Renovations at Dodger Stadium are also proceeding at a slower pace. While construction hasn’t come to a halt, there was skepticism that the project would be finished by the end of the month.

Anyone else here unaware that this was in the works before running into this tidbit?

The "this" being the Dodger Stadium renovations? If so, then yes. Of course, it helps to live close enough to the ballpark that I could walk away from this computer, get in my car, cruise down the 110, and be at a parking lot gate within 15 minutes.

MLB won't have any "winners" emerging from the pandemic, but the Dodgers certainly are set up to lose more than others: The odds-on WS favorite may not get a WS to play in, Betts might leave without ever taking a single swing for the team, and no All-Star Game. All of which is why yesterday was, emotionally, Not Good for me.
