MLB Cancels Opening Day As Lockout Continues

The 2022 Major League Baseball season will not start on time, according to Commissioner Rob Manfred. “I had hoped against hope that I would not have to have this particular press conference in which I am going to cancel some regular season games,” Manfred said Tuesday afternoon. On the 90th day of an owner-implemented lockout and the ninth straight day of in-person bargaining, the league and union were unable to reach a mutually tolerable collective bargaining agreement.
