Major League Baseball is set to follow the lead of the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League and play their postseason in a bubble amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to Tyler Kepner of the New York Times.
While the league is still working out details with the MLBPA, the World Series will be played at the Texas Rangers’ new stadium, Globe Life Field, in Arlington.
Earlier reports have indicated two separate playoff bubbles – not unlike the NHL – housing the two leagues, with the National League playing across two ballparks in southern California and the American League playing in Texas. That would mean the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, and Oakland Athletics could be in the running to host Senior Circuit clubs, while the Junior Circuit would play at Globe Life Field and Minute Maid Park – the Houston Astros’ home field.
