Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner expects fans in Yankee Stadium in 2020
Despite recent spikes in coronavirus cases throughout the country, Steinbrenner thinks the Yankess will be able to host fans at some point in 2020.“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.

NFL will treat COVID-19 players as injured players
The NFL has a lot of issues that need to be resolved before training camp start. Here is the latest on the NFL’s efforts to finalize a new setup for the impending COVID-19-altered season.

In the past season, he was only used in the three Leipzig DFB Cup appearances and twice in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League group game against Benfica Lisbon. In total, there were only 19 competitive appearances for him in three Leipzig years. Since his standing in the club is unlikely to change, he is worried about his place in the Swiss EM squad. He has played two caps for the Confederates so far, and has been a reserve goalkeeper in Switzerland's last eleven games.
Hertha stretches out the feelers
There is no shortage of new prospects for Mvogo. Since his contract in Leipzig expires next year, he should be able to have significantly below the former purchase price. The responsive and leaping keeper has received several inquiries from home and abroad. Among other things, Hertha BSC has stretched out its feelers. However, the Berliners do not offer a guarantee that they can start the new season as number one. He would have to face the competition with the longtime number one rune Jarstein. The almost 36-year-old Norwegian played a mixed second half of the season, but has been the top dog in the capital club's goal for the past five years.
