World Series on Christmas? With MLB’s COVID-19 delay, that is agent Scott Boras’ plan

Reggie Jackson was Mr. October. Derek Jeter was Mr. November.

Could we get a Mr. December this year?

If super agent Scott Boras has his way, that seems likely. With the Major League Baseball season on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Boras shared a plan with the Los Angeles Times that would allow for a full 162-game schedule and the entire playoff structure.

It could culminate with a World Series game being played on Christmas Day. Yep, you’d mix “Ho Ho Ho” with “Play Ball.”

“Winter Classic” doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?
