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.

NEW YORK, NY & MILFORD, Conn. (July 31, 2020) – Sandwich lovers and football fans just scored a major touchdown. The National Football League (NFL) today announced that Subway® restaurants, the world’s largest sandwich chain, is now an Official Sponsor of the NFL.

As an official multi-year sponsor of the NFL, Subway will have exclusive marketing rights and activation opportunities at key NFL events and experiences. The brand will also sponsor NFL FLAG, the largest U.S. flag football league and support NFL PLAY 60, which is dedicated to keeping youth active and healthy. Subway will align with key teams, players and partners to bring the sponsorship to life.

The long-term sponsorship kicks off this fall with a new ad campaign featuring NFL talent and personalities and restaurant promotions, allowing Subway fans to enjoy two of America’s favorite things – Footlong subs and football.

“With NFL fans more excited than ever for the return of football, we are thrilled to have Subway, as an official league sponsor,” said Renie Anderson, Chief Revenue Officer & EVP, NFL Partnerships. “We are also excited for Subway’s partnership in flag football and our Play 60 initiatives. We look forward to working closely with them to help grow the sport of football and make the NFL season better than ever for our fans.”

Subway® restaurants are the ideal stop for families and athletes across the globe looking to make better choices and fuel their days and practices with better options like sandwiches made with delicious ingredients – from freshly-baked bread, to fresh veggies, and a variety of toppings and sauces. ​

“We know Subway fans are football fans and our footlongs have always been the perfect game night food, so we are proud to make the connection official with this multi-year NFL partnership,” said Carrie Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer of Subway.  “We are a brand that prides ourselves on making it easier for fans and for athletes to be a little better every day. That’s why we’re excited to add our fresh flavor and make this and every football season, footlong season. With millions of sandwich combinations and more Subway restaurant locations across the country than any other chain, the possibilities for engagement are endless.”

Antonio Brown was notified by NFL Special Counsel for Conduct Todd Jones that he has been suspended without pay for the first eight regular-season games of the 2020 season for multiple violations of the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.

Brown, who played one game in the 2019 season for the New England Patriots before being released, is an unrestricted free agent and may sign with any team. If he is signed before the start of the 2020 season, Brown would be eligible to participate in all of his club’s preseason activities. Brown’s suspension would take effect as of the final roster reduction on September 5. He would be eligible to return after the team’s eighth game.

As part of the discipline, Brown was directed to continue his program of counseling and treatment, and that he is expected fully to cooperate with his clinicians.

Brown was advised that any future violation of the Personal Conduct Policy will likely result in more significant discipline.
