Major League Baseball is well-known for its annoying blackout policy and they have no intention of doing anything differently in a pandemic-shortened season. Buster Olney reported that even though fans will not be allowed in the stands, MLB will still black out local games on streaming services. It is truly amazing how many opportunities the sport is willing to throw away during this unprecedented time.

You would think that MLB would want to make the best of a bad situation. People are desperate for sports right now and instead of making baseball available to every possible person, they are just doing more of the same. We already know that every practice and scrimmage should be on local television.
