- Games lost over labor dispute for first time in 27 years
- Unresolved argument is mostly over money
MLB has canceled opening day, with commissioner Rob Manfred announcing on Tuesday the league will lose regular-season games over a labor dispute for the first time in 27 years after acrimonious lockout talks collapsed in the hours before management’s deadline.
Manfred said he is canceling the first two series of a season that was set to begin on 31 March, dropping the schedule from 162 games to 156 games at most. Manfred said the league and union have not made plans for future negotiations. Players won’t be paid for missed games.
