KC Royals news surrounds the fact that the Kansas City Royals would have been hosting Opening Day on Thursday, but due to COVID-19, no one knows when baseball will resume activities again.
The Kansas City Royals would have been a week into their 2020 season, but Thursday would have been Opening Day at Kauffman Stadium, a game that is always sure to have an abundance of fans in the stands no matter what the season projections are.
Instead, Royals fans and everyone else in the country (and throughout the world) are staying home and trying their best not to go out unless absolutely necessary. Due to bans on social gatherings of more than ten people and everyone needing to be at least six feet apart, sports not being played throughout the month of April is understandable.
While this is all out of our control, but hopefully there’s baseball in 2020. The Kansas City Royals were going to have an interesting season and this was going to be a year in which a lot of promising prospects made their way to the majors, so it’d be nice to see that still come to fruition.
Perhaps games are eventually played without fans in the stands, but who knows when baseball might be played again.

Opening Day this season wasn’t a true Opening Day for the Kansas City Royals – they would have opened things up in Chicago against the White Sox last week – but at least Thursday would have been a perfect day weather wise for some baseball.
Sam Mellinger of The Kansas City Star wrote about when he thought baseball might return and he contemplated that there might not be a season in 2020. While that’d be devastating, he also noted that no matter what happens, this season will have an asterisk next to it no matter what.
Not having baseball this time of year is weird, but no one could have known things would be like this right now. Hopefully things get better and baseball is able to return.
