MLB has announced Friday morning that Spring Training games has been postponed until at least March 5th because of the ongoing lockout in the sport. MLB released a statement on Friday regarding the matter:
We regret that, without a collective bargaining agreement in place, we must postpone the start of Spring Training games until no earlier than Saturday, March 5th. All 30 Clubs are unified in their strong desire to bring players back to the field and fans back to the stands. The Clubs have adopted a uniform policy that provides an option for full refunds for fans who have purchased tickets from the Cubs to any Spring Training games that are not taking place. We are committed to reaching an agreement that is fair to each side. On Monday, members of the owners bargaining committee will join an in person meeting with the players association and remain every day next week to negotiate and work hard towards starting the season on time.
Representatives of owners and players will be meeting every day next week to try to make an agreement so the 2022 season can begin on time. They’re definitely under time pressure now, so we’ll see how that goes.
