PHOENIX — Baseball's opening day isn't happening in Phoenix or anywhere else on Thursday as planned.

The sport is on hold until at least mid-May while the world fights the coronavirus pandemic.

If baseball does resume this season, there could be some radical scheduling solutions as MLB tries to squeeze in as many games as possible.

Some of the ideas could include numerous doubleheaders, games in November or December and possible neutral-site games when the weather turns cold. Executives and players largely agree that being flexible and open to ideas will be important.
