Headline Sports podcast with Barbara Mason:
#1 The PGA will announce next Monday that the PGA Championship will be held on Aug 6-9 in Harding Park in San Francisco. The Championship was canceled for May 14-17 due to Coronavirus outbreak.
#2 California Gov Gavin Newsom said he is not anticipating lifting the social distancing ban or shelter in place policy by Aug 6th. Newsom said a second wave had hit China after lifting their quarantine the first time. So the PGA Championship could very likely be rescheduled in 2021.
#3 Does holding the 2020 World Series in a neutral site seem practical will fans come to see teams from other cities for a neutral site World Series it would be first. Not to mention all the regular season games in Arizona.
#4 The San Francisco certainly would like to host the World Series as one those neutral site locations. they have 50 degree weather in October or November in the City at that time, one question would this idea be well received and if it works well will baseball adapt this as the new normal?
#5 The current plague is not expected to wear off as early as June or July or maybe by Christmas at the latest if that’s so the NBA or NHL could start their seasons in December. Cancelling baseball and football. Barbara how do you see those scenarios?
