Rob Manfred Hopes Fans Will Be Able To Attend LCS, World Series Games 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 16, 2020 11:59 am

Rob Manfred still hopes fans will be able to attend playoff games in Major League Baseball\'s approved bubble.

\"I\'m hopeful that the World Series and the LCS we will have limited fan capacity,\" Manfred said. \"I think it\'s important for us to start back down the road. Obviously it\'ll be limited numbers, socially distanced, protection provided for the fans in terms of temperature checks and the like. Kind of the pods like you saw in some of the NFL games. We\'ll probably use that same theory. But I do think it\'s important as we look forward to 2021 to get back to the idea that live sports, they\'re generally outdoors, at least our games. And it\'s something that we can get back to.\"

The division series, league championship series and World Series all will be part of a bubble designed to minimize exposure to the coronavirus, which limited the regular season to a 60-game schedule for each club and caused 45 postponements.
