Major League Baseball is trying to return to action as soon as possible, but doing so in empty stadiums might be a last resort.

The league has "little to no appetite" for staging games in empty ballparks and also doesn't want to extend a potential postseason into December, a league source told Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated.

MLB suspended Opening Day indefinitely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While commissioner Rob Manfred has stated that mid-May would be an ideal starting point, the growing spread of the virus might make that difficult.
