What’s more, 11 additional players have tested positive for coronavirus outside of NHL training camps.

Nothing is expected to change about the Yankees ’ leadership structure. Hal is the managing general partner, and since he assumed day-to-day control of the The team has been run like a hybrid of the old Yankees , combining the financial might associated with George Steinbrenner ’s era (see: the

With COVID-19 infection rates soaring as the outset of baseball’s 2020 relaunch approaches, even a TV-only season seems like a tall order. Nevertheless, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner offered a surprisingly optimistic tone regarding the return of fans to Yankee Stadium this year, as George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

“I do expect to see fans in our stadium at some point to some degree,” says Steinbrenner. There are limitations to the vision, naturally. Even the KBO, which has been playing now for some time, has yet to reintroduce fans and will do so on a limited basis when the time comes. Steinbrenner guesses attendance will “be in the 20-30 percent [capacity] range, hopefully, at first.”

Minor League Baseball season officially canceled due to coronavirus

Minor league teams are huge parts of their communities, and a lot of smaller cities and towns across the country will miss them a lot in 2020.In addition, hundreds of minor league players and staff are essentially out of work for the rest of the year and are basically reliant on their MLB affiliates being willing to pay them through the end of the year.

Brother Hal Steinbrenner is the Yankees ’ managing general partner and co-chairperson. However, in recent years Hank Steinbrenner hasn’t been seen around the Yankees much and heard from less as the more reserved Hal Steinbrenner moved to the forefront of the operation, serving as the public

Harold Steinbrenner (born December 3, 1969) is an American businessman. He is the owner , managing general partner, and chairman of the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball.

Still not sold on the plausibility of that plan? Steinbrenner says it can be pulled off, claiming “it’s definitely possible in the stadium to keep people at a safe distance, wearing masks at those capacities.” And he says the team has already had plenty of promising interactions with New York governor Andrew Cuomo. The state’s top elected official has “been a big advocate to getting sports back on the field and then eventually, when things are safe, to get fans back in the stadium,” Steinbrenner says.

If and when the Yankees faithful are allowed back in the park, they’ll evidently do so in an unfamiliar formation. As you might expect, in addition to being asked to don masks, fans will be expected to spread out. Steinbrenner says that the team has worked with Ticketmaster at “putting a diagram together which would keep everybody at least 6 feet apart.”

Mr. Steinbrenner , the Yankees ’ principal owner and chairman, had ceded increasing authority to his sons, Hal and Hank, who became co-chairmen in May 2008. He cast an eye toward New Jersey, pressed for a new stadium in Manhattan and ultimately got a .5 billion stadium built in the Bronx

First, the Yanks will need to make it through camp and get games underway. The team is mindful of the need to maintain a healthy roster. Steinbrenner says the org is committed to ensuring “that everybody is safe, everybody is keeping their distances and following the protocols” during the second training period.
