MLB Draft to start June 10, to be held virtually

MLB, season

The recently-concluded 2020 NFL Draft was a smashing success. Commissioner Roger Goodell and Co. did well to iron out all the wrinkles with the draft being held completely virtually during the age of COVID-19.

It looks like other sports are going to follow suit. Originally slated to start in Omaha on June 10, the 2020 MLB Draft will still go on as planned. Though, it will also be an all-virtual format.

The good news here is that MLB is not postponing the draft. Though, the league’s calendar now looks much different than prior to the pandemic.

As of right now, there’s a plan in place for the MLB season to start in late June or early July. The hope is that games will be played in home stadiums without fans in attendance.
