2020 minor league baseball season canceled

  2020 minor league baseball season canceled Minor League Baseball’s effort to defend its member teams was greatly imperiled by the global pandemic. Public attention, for good reason, has been elsewhere, and minor league teams have experienced a more or less complete halt to revenue. A resumption of play might have helped. There were times when it seemed plausible, but any hope dissipated over recent weeks. Even as MLB and its players haggled over the terms for a big league resumption, a ramp-up of virus transmission in many parts of the United States served to increase the already great logistical challenges to a MiLB season.We’ll see how the broader picture turns out.

Alex Mardis, 31, disappeared Oct. 30, 2019, from a family home in Avis, Pa., about 150 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Remains matching his basic description were found July 2 in the Susquehanna River, PennLive reported.

Mardis was living with his girlfriend at his grandfather’s home in the 1,500-person town when he disappeared, according to NBC News. His girlfriend, who police did not identify, said he’d left to go fishing on that October day and never returned.

Some family members have said that Mardis, an avid fisherman, would have known to avoid the river that day because it was running high due to heavy rains.

Two fishermen discovered what is presumably Mardis’ skeleton last Thursday, PennLive reported. Police believe that he was swept away by the river, explaining why his body was not found during previous searches.

Cops said it could take weeks to officially identify the body, according to NBC News. Mardis’ family, however, has been informed that the remains are likely his.
