In an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, the director of the national Institute of allergy and infectious diseases has stated that Major League Baseball is expected to conclude the playoffs in September.
“If the issue is time, I will try to keep it in the summer months of base and not the finish with the way we play the World Series, until the end of October when it gets cold,” said Fauci.
The MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association, the players union, are still negotiating a baseball season shortened. The two sides remain in disagreement about the protocols of health and the duration of the season.
Fauci explained that even with the warm weather today, there has been an increase in the number of new cases of coronavirus as the States continue to reopen, but said ” the odds that there is less of a problem at the end of July and the whole month of August and September are much, much better than if you go in October. ”
Fauci said he was missing watching his team from his hometown, the champion of the World Series to Washington.
But he told the LA Times that he would go to a match in the stadium if there was a limited capacity, seats are spaced out and that everyone was obliged to wear a mask – and if the rate of infection in Washington, D. C. further declined.
