The Korea Baseball Organization announced plans this week to begin its regular season on May 5, . Should KBO succeed with its plans, it would become the second baseball league to launch its 2020 season since the spread of the novel coronavirus, joining Taiwan's Chinese Profe sional Baseball League. The Maurice Cheeks Jersey league began preseason games on Tuesday, and KBO still wants to play its usual 144 games in a season Sergio Rodriguez Jersey that will run through November.The KBO and CPBL should provide more than hope and entertainment to American fans yearning for baseball.

Planning for a positive testIf and when a player does show symptoms of having contracted COVID-19, that player will be quarantined.
