This is the second of three items on sports attempting to have “normal seasons” in 2020-2021. I actually planned to write this last, but the issue is pressing.
A few months ago, Taiwan’s CPBL boasted about starting its regular season only a month late but still having a regular season. South Korea’s KBO also began a shortened but “normal” baseball season too, as has Japan’s NPB (beginning only a month ago).
I am starting to regret this. It may have encouraged other leagues around the world to say “this is fine!”
More below the fold. A lot more.
