Opening day will be held either July 23 or July 24.

The league has implemented a 60 game season that will run through September 27, and will have the same 10-team playoff structure it has used for almost a decade.

Some changes include the National League using a designated hitter, in extra innings, teams will begin with a runner on second base.

And there will be a special COVID-19 injured list with no minimum or maximum length of time spent on it.

Players will be tested every other day, even if they are asymptomatic.
