Baseball returns next week; Nike scientists invent “knuckleball free” ball (for soccer).
Better late than never. Major League Baseball is set to return next week after delaying opening day due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The abbreviated 60-day season will kick off July 23rd with the New York Yankees facing the current world champion Washington Nationals. The Yankees Gerrit Cole is scheduled to face off against Nats’ ace Max Scherzer. Games will be played in compliance with current local health regulations which may feature fewer or even no fans in attendance. However, baseball is finally back!
