Major League Baseball Cancels March 31 Opening Day Games

From a story on by TuAnh Dam headlined “MLB cancels Opening Day after players, league fail to reach a deal”:

Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, which was scheduled for March 31, will be canceled after the league and the players’ association failed to reach a deal, commissioner Rob Manfred announced Tuesday.

Why it matters: It will be the first time in 27 years that regular-season games have been canceled due to a labor dispute between the two sides.

  • The first two series of the season have been canceled and will not be made up, according to Manfred. Players will not be paid for missed games.
