It remains to be seen when, or even if, the 2020 MLB season will happen.
Coronavirus continues to leave the season suspended indefinitely, as MLB stadiums remain devoid of all typical spring activities.
One idea that has been thrown out is the league holding a shortened version of the season in a neutral location, like team spring training hubs in Florida and Arizona.
"I think we've got to look at the path that presents the best public health option," Giants CEO Larry Baer said Friday on KNBR. "Arizona might be a better possibility because you could get 30 teams there in more approximate distancing, meaning that everybody would not be a four or five-hour drive from one ballpark to another."
All of Arizona's Cactus League spring training stadiums are within the same county (Maricopa), while Florida's Grapefruit League stadiums stretch all across the expansive state, with some being hundreds of miles apart.
Baer emphasized that many scenarios have been thrown out around the league, but that the safety of all those involved with the game should take precedent.
"That's one idea, there are other ideas out there," Baer said. "I just think we've got to chase down every possible idea to return baseball, but only when it's safe and only when [there is] public health clearance."
