It’s not yet known when the Major League Baseball season will resume after the start of the 2020 campaign was suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

What we do know is that MLB has plans to start the season at some point this summer. They might be far-fetched, but at the very least there’s some optimism on this front.

Those impacted by the first month-plus of the season being suspended will now have an opportunity to receive refunds. The New York Mets announced on Thursday that fans will have an opportunity to receive refunds through April 30.

This had been a big point of contention in the Big Apple, the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world.

It was just yesterday that the Mets released a statement indicating they were finalizing a refund policy. It appears that the public pressure forced New York into expediting its refund policy.

This does not cover games that will not take place in the month of May. It also doesn’t take into account the likelihood that games won’t be played with fans in attendance if/once the 2020 season actually starts.

It seems the Mets are kicking that issue down the road right now.
