Mexico Still Struggling with Start of Summer Season

The summer Mexican League is still struggling with the start of the season. The teams do not want to begin the season with no fans since like the minor leagues in the United States the fans are their major source of revenue. They also can not extend the season because it would then run into the more popular winter season. Many of the players who play in the summer league also play in the winter league.

They do have a tentative date to open on August 7, but that is dependent on the status of the corona virus and their ability to allow fans. The league president has mandated that the season will not start if fans are not allowed in the stadium. The current plan is to end on November 7, for a 48 game season. If they have to postpone beyond August 7 there may be no point in having a summer season.
