Mookie Betts heads into this MLB season with much uncertainty after signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. But the outfielder says he does not regret declining a $300 million offer with the Boston Red Sox even if it means less money down the road.
With less than three weeks to prepare for Opening Day of the 2020 and without a chance to play Cactus League games, the Los Angeles Dodgers are relying on an abundance of live batting practice and intrasquad games during Summer Camp.
With just 60 games being played this season, baseball fans are bound to see new history entered into the books in some shape or form. Baseball could see an unlikely champion, MVP, or some astronomical stat never imagined.
Betts spoke about the two overarching issues that have dominated the national discourse since baseball hit pause in March. He indicated that he is focused right now on health and safety matters as camp gets underway.
Major League Baseball announced the 2020 schedule, which has the Dodgers beginning the 60-game regular season July 23 at home against the Giants. The nationally televised Opening Day presented by Bank of America will begin at 7:08 p.m.
