Although Arizona’s spring training facilities are well-received, Maricopa County, where all facilities are located, is said to be one of the most prevalent areas in the United States. “Given the current situation in Maricopa County, we believe it is wise to delay the start of spring training to improve the status of coronavirus infection,” the Cactus League wrote.

So far, the Major League Baseball Commissioner Manfred has informed each team to perform spring training in February as usual and to have a season of 162 games. In response to the Cactus League document, the Major League Baseball Players Association said, “We share the goal of safe spring training and regular seasons, but MLB is on schedule for the team (spring training and regular seasons). We are instructing you to prepare to get started, and we will continue to do our best to make it as safe as possible. “
