The Major League Baseball season is coming back and opening day is a month away

Good news, baseball fans; Major League Baseball is coming back for the 2020 season and things are kicking off in less than a month.

The MLB Players' Association has agreed to an abbreviated, 60-game regular season that will begin on July 23 or 24 and end in late September.

Spring training camps are reportedly slated to begin July 1.

The news comes after a month-long saga of negotiations more intense than the last season of Game of Thrones, in which multiple return-to-play proposals were rejected by both the league and the MLB Players Association.

The latest version of MLB's plan includes a number of safety protocols, including requiring players to submit to twice-a-day temperature and symptom checks.

Under the proposed plan, non-playing personnel will also be required to wear masks in the dug-out at all times.

It's still unclear where exactly the Toronto Blue Jays will be playing their home games but it's likely to be somewhere south of the border.
