Red Sox CEO says there is possibility team could have fans at games
So much about the 2020 MLB season — and everything in life these days — is in flux based on changing circumstances related to COVID-19. But one thing we know is that MLB teams are hopeful to have fans in their stadiums this year.
Boston Red Sox CEO Sam Kennedy told reporters on Wednesday that fans at Fenway Park this year could be a “possibility” if the cases of COVID-19 in Massachusetts continue to decline.
Kennedy says fans at Fenway in Phase 3 of reopening could be a “possibility” based on Massachusetts data on decline in COVID-19 cases. “We are hopeful to have fans at some point.” Says some MLB clubs anticipate fans this year.

Several other MLB teams are reportedly hoping to have fans at games.
The possibility of having anywhere near a capacity crowd this season is highly unlikely, but teams are hoping to be able to have some fans, even if it’s a limited amount in order to adhere to advised social distancing guidelines.
MLB and the players association agreed this week to a 60-game regular season. Players will report to camp by July 1st.
