The sports world is still figuring out what comes next in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With so much uncertainty surrounding the 2020 MLB season, the White Sox gave an update to season ticket holders on Saturday.
In a letter from Jim Willits, Vice President of Sales and Services, the organization emphasized health and safety, and gave an update on Major League Baseball's plans for the upcoming season
"MLB is developing several contingency plans for the 2020 regular season schedule and will announce the impact on the schedule at an appropriate time with the goal of resuming normal operations as soon as possible," Willits wrote. "To date, no games have been canceled. Please hold on to your tickets until an official policy is announced. We are working through our approach to handling ticket issues with MLB and will communicate details to fans as they become available. We appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime."
While we know the start of the season has been delayed, what the 2020 season will look like as a whole is anyone's guess. The logistics of starting back up after missing a chunk of the calendar is one problem. Figuring out how to handle lost games for season ticket holders will be another. Keeping a ticket stub will ensure proof of purchase and the ability to receive a potential refund.
MLB hasn't announced a shortened schedule yet, but the longer this goes, the more inevitable that will become. And it won't be so easy to just pick things up where they left off.
Willits' letter also notes that all White Sox front office employees have been required to work from home.
