NEW YORK (WSAW) -- According to a press release by Major League Baseball, Opening Day has been pushed back two weeks.

Major League Baseball also decided to suspend spring training due to concerns over the COVID-19.

"MLB and the Clubs have been preparing a variety of contingency plans regarding the 2020 regular season schedule," said MLB in the press release. "MLB will announce the effects on the schedule at an appropriate time and will remain flexible as events warrant, with the hope of resuming normal operations as soon as possible."

The Brewers were going to open their season against the Cubs at Miller Park on March 26. That is no longer the case.
