New Proposal From MLB Players, NASCAR To Start Allowing Fans, PGA Tour Set To Resume
MLB and it’s players continue to send proposals back and forth as they try to reach an agreement to start the season. The players yesterday proposed an 89-game regular season with full prorated salaries, one day after the league sent it’s latest proposal for a 76-game season and about 75 percent of prorated salaries. Players have been refusing pay cuts beyond the ones they agreed to in March.
NASCAR, which has been holding races without fans since it’s return, is now ready to allow some fans back. It will allow a limited number of fans at races this month at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. All fans will be screened before entering, will have to wear face masks, and be required to practice social distancing.
And, the PGA Tour returns from it’s suspended season Thursday with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 AM for George Floyd. The 8:46 tee time will be left vacant and represents the 8 minutes and 46 seconds that a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on Floyd’s neck.
