Players counter with 70-game season, 10 more than MLB
NEW YORK — Baseball players have proposed a 70-game regular-season schedule, leaving them and the teams 10 games and about $275 million apart on plans to start the coronavirus-delayed season.
As part of the union proposal, players would wear advertisement patches on their uniforms during all games for the first time in major league history. MLB has said there was a framework for the season, but the union said only that there was no agreement.
The MLB proposal included a 60-game schedule that would have $1.48 billion in salaries plus a $25 million players’ postseason pool.
The union would have $1.73 billion in salaries, plus a $50 million postseason pool.
