MLB Reportedly Want All Players & Staff To Vaccinate Before 2021 Season

World Series - Houston Astros v Washington Nationals - Game Three

The 2020 season has been something like we have never seen before.

The Los Angeles Dodgers ended up winning the World Series championship in a 60 game season. Now, with the vaccine coming out, some Major League Baseball owners and executives are reportedly pushing for a shortened 2021 season to provide players enough time to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. 

“Major League Baseball executives and owners, wanting players to be vaccinated before arriving to spring training, would like the 2021 season to be delayed until May, even if it means shortening the season to 140 or fewer games.

Players were following really strict protocols that were put in place that delayed until July and consisted of 60-game schedules after the owners and players failed to reach an agreement on a stat date. The season only happened because the league had the ability to implement a schedule of its desired length.
