NEW YORK (AP) — Arizona's governor is willing to host all 30 major league teams at the time public health concerns allow.

That eventually could lead to the start of the baseball season primarily in empty spring training ballparks.

Major League Baseball and the players’ association have had preliminary discussions of how they would start if given the go-ahead by government and health officials.

MLB is cutting the salary of senior staff by an average of 35% for this year due to the new coronavirus’ impact on the season. It is guaranteeing paychecks to its full-time employees of its central office through May.
