NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball’s teams have pledged $30 million for ballpark workers who will lose income because of the delay to the season caused by the new coronavirus.
Commissioner Rob Manfred made the announcement Tuesday, a day after pushing back opening day to mid-May at the earliest.
Each club has pledged $1 million.
Many ballpark employees are paid by the game and will not have that income during the delay.
If the schedule is cut, their income likely would be reduced.
