While most fans of Major League Baseball are celebrating the idea that baseball might be back soon, Dodgers fans are left confused. Yes, Rob Manfred has made it clear that’s baseball returning to action is likely, and we have very few reasons to believe it will not happen.
But Los Angeles County just (sort of) made it clear that stay-at-home orders will remain in effect for quite some time. The LA Times reported that Los Angeles could stay fairly locked down for a few extra weeks depending on how the summer pays out and what those conditions look like. So if that remains true, do the Dodgers even get to play at their home stadium?
As it turns out, the answer may be yes after all. Governor Gavin Newsom is reportedly considering making at least somewhat of an exception for the Dodgers to return, should that order remain in effect.
Though stay-at-home orders could go deep into July in LA, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has recently spoken to California Governor @GavinNewsom and word is they had a positive, productive talk about baseball there, if not right when MLB starts up possibly soon after. https://t.co/xegsMR4BoW
