Baseball fans are not very happy about the fact the MLB lockout is delaying the start of the 2022 season. Thankfully, not all baseball has been called off. My good friend Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, a Michigan sports announcer and author, posted something today that made me smile regarding the upcoming season. Read on!

  • The lockout

    MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced this week that the first two series of the 2022 season will not be played after talks for a collective bargaining agreement with the union went nowhere.

  • Will the minor leagues play without MLB baseball?

    Yes. Minor league teams are making it clear that this lockout will not impact their games.

  • Some changes

    More than a quarter of all MLB 40-man rosters are prospects, so they won’t be able to play in the minors during the lockout.

  • When?

    The regular season of Triple-A baseball starts on April 5. The other full-season minors (Double-A and the Class A levels) starts on April 8.
