While it is still not clear when, if ever, the Major League Baseball will play a 2020 season, a new recommendation from Dr. Anthony Fauci could cause the league to consider an earlier end.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview to The Los Angeles Times that he would recommend that the league end its playoffs before October.

“If the question is time, I would try to keep it in the main summer months and not end it with the way we play the World Series, until the end of October when it’s cold “Fauci told the LA Times. “I would avoid that. ”

The league, which generally begins in April and ends in October, suspended the opening day in March as well as most major sports organizations. Although the states have lifted the restrictions, the league has begun considering a start date for the season. Unfortunately for the fans, however, the teams and the players’ union were unable to agree on a schedule.

Commissioner Rob Manfred also faltered in his confidence in a 2020 season, claiming he was “100%” certain that this year would not see any MLB games, according to the Associated Press.
