The Michigan Tech football team has released a 10-game schedule for next fall. The Huskies will open with a non-conference home game against McKendree University on September 12th. Their other non-GLIAC tilt will be October 3rd against Hillsdale – also at home. The Miner’s Cup game against Northern Michigan University will be played October 24th in Marquette.
The potential start of the baseball season is backing farther and farther away. Yesterday, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said he hopes that spring workouts can resume in May. He held out the possibility that some games could be played in June, even if they need to take place without fans. He did admit, though, that the season may not be able to begin until July, and that it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to play the full schedule.
MLB teams have each agreed to pay up to $170 million in salaries to their players over the next 60 days. They have also decided to proceed with the 2020 amateur draft, but shorten it to five rounds.
The Tigers did make a couple of roster moves yesterday, optioning shortstop Willi Castro and outfielder Troy Stokes Jr. to Triple-A Toledo.
The owner who moved the Braves out of Milwaukee has died. Bill Bartholomay was 91 years old. He relocated the team to Atlanta in 1966, four years after he purchased the franchise from Lou Perini, who had moved the club to Milwaukee from Boston.
The National Football League Draft will take place as scheduled, April 23rd through 25th. The league’s executive council voted yesterday to proceed, even though all public aspects of the event had already been canceled. In a letter to team owners, Commissioner Roger Goodell encouraged them to make plans to prepare for the draft with as few people on-site as possible.
The Detroit Lions have signed free agent Geremy Davis. Davis is listed as a wide receiver, but is best-known as a special teams player. In four seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers, he caught just one pass for three yards.
