Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020
Date: July 5, 2020
The 2020 season was one of the most unconventional in MLB history. Like all major sports in the United States, MLB made tough decisions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with a delayed, shortened 60-game season, the league issued safety protocols for players including testing and isolation for positive cases. Fans were also barred from attending games. In late August, the Mets became the fourth team to postpone games due to a clubhouse outbreak. “I think what we’re all learning is that this virus continues to have a lot more questions for us than answers,” said general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.
