Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced Wednesday that more regular season games have been canceled, pushing opening day back to April 14 at the earliest.
The announcement comes after the league owners and the Players’ Association still can’t come to an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement.
“Because of the logistical realities of the calendar, another two series are being removed from the schedule,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.
“I am saddened by this situation’s continued impact on our game and all those who are a part of it, especially our loyal fans,” he added.
The MLB Players Association issued their own statement, which said MLB’s decision to cancel additional games was “completely unnecessary” and players have “yet to hear back” following proposals.
