MLB season may not start until June, or even mid-July

The Major League Baseball season has only been officially delayed to May 10, but officials are circling June, or possibly even the All-Star game on July 14, as a potential starting date.

This is according to a report from Jeff Passan of ESPN, who said the players and the league are still trying to play as close to 162 games as possible, even if the season does not start until June or July. That could mean extending the regular season through October and playing up to two double-headers per week.
