The start of Major League Baseball’s 2020 season has been pushed back until at least May because of the novel coronavirus, which has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. As such, seasonal ballpark employees stand to take a financial hit because of the delay and the likelihood of an abbreviated 2020 schedule. That’s why each of MLB’s 30 teams are committing $1 million to aid those employees and address the harm caused by those lost wages.
