| March 12, 2020 | 0 Comments

As concerns over the coronavirus continue to cause the cancellation of events around the world, including almost every American sports league, the Orioles and Major League Baseball have announced a plan to delay the season by at least two weeks. Opening Day was scheduled for March 26th. The Orioles released the following statement:

The Orioles organization is fully supportive of Major League Baseball’s decision to suspend Spring Training games and to delay the start of the 2020 regular season by at least two weeks. The health and safety of our players, fans, staff, and partners will always be our top priority. We will communicate additional details, including information about refunds, directly to fans when they become available, as this is a rapidly-evolving situation. We encourage everyone to continue to follow the important guidelines established by the CDC and other public health organizations.
