The call will cover all of the options moving forward for the sports world, but with several states and provinces closing up events until July, the likelihood is the NBA and NHL seasons will be cancelled.
MLB continues to consider playing games in empty stadiums in Florida and Arizona, while the NHL is now looking ahead to next season and there’s even a chance the next NHL season doesn’t begin in October.
Yup. Also a consideration …
