2020 numbers make history
“Major League Baseball is thrilled to announce that the 2020 season is on the horizon,” MLB Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. said in a press release dated June 23, 2020. “We have provided the Players Association with a schedule to play 60 games and are excited to provide our great fans with Baseball again soon.”
Hall of Fame Membership
As the keepers of the Game’s history, the Hall of Fame helps you relive your memories and celebrate baseball history.
With an unprecedented delay of Opening Day by four months, the historic campaign – which finished Sept. 27 – came to a conclusion with a number of unique individual league leaders from its truncated season. Although not the typical six-month marathon baseball fans are accustomed to, the numbers put up by the players will stand alongside other year’s marks.
And some will stand alongside a Hall of Famer.
