Lto Major League Baseball season 2022 remains on the air after 2021 closes with a lockout, which puts at risk that everything can start as planned.
The annoyance of the team owners comes after the discomfort caused by the drop in the average salary, an affected middle class due to the fact that teams concentrate the cost on more onerous contracts and the substitution of veteran players for younger and lower paid ones, especially in clubs that dismantle their squads to rebuild themselves.
Pitchers and catchers are required to report to spring training on February 16, leaving very little room for an agreement between Commissioner Rob Manfred’s office, the team owners and the MLBPA.
The season is scheduled to start on March 31, which is very difficult to comply with and is that so far there is no progress in the negotiations to lift the strike.
We will have to wait to know the evolution that the conflict is taking and know if we will have a full season, a shortened one or finally there will be no Big Top baseball in 2022.
