During 2020 Season, MLB will play seven innings during doubleheaders

During the current 2020 season, MLB has made radical changes to spice up the game a bit due to the current coronavirus pandemic.

They have just added a new wrinkle.

Major League Baseball doubleheaders will now be a pair of seven-inning games just like Minor League Baseball. On Sunday, that became a reality when the Reds and Tigers played their doubelheader. Both games won by Cincinnati at Detroit, 4-3 and 4-0.

Media reports have stated that MLB and the Players Association reached an agreement last Thursday.

The 2020 season has been compacted to a 60-game schedule. With very few days off, weather-related doubleheaders are going to be necessary to get all the games in.
