MLB news: Few postseason games at Yankee Stadium as MLB and players agree to “bubble” locations

William Parlee

MLB and the MLBPA (baseball player’s association) have reportedly come to an agreement that will have postseason games at bubble locations. Both Ken Rosenthal of The Atlantic and Jess Passan of ESPN has reported the details, although an official announcement by MLB will not be made until later today.

The Wild card series for seeds 1-4 will be held at home parks for all three-game series. The American League Divisional series will be played in the bubble at Petco Park and Dodger Stadium. The ALCS will be played at Petco Park. The National League Divisional series will play at MinuteMaid Park and Globe Life Field. The NLCS will be held at Globe Life Field. The World Series will play entirely at the brand new Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

On March 31, 2020, a new era for the Texas Rangers began with the opening of Globe Life Field in Arlington. The beautiful baseball-only facility serves as the centerpiece of a 270-acre complex that solidifies Arlington, Texas as an entertainment giant in the Southwest.  The beautiful new stadium has wonderful amenities, and is a beautifully designed stadium with a retractable roof. Postseason viewers won’t have to worry about rain causing delays.

Many New York Yankees fans were hoping that many of the games would be played at the Stadium in the Bronx.  Depending on how the rest of the season turns out, the Yankees may see the wild card game between the Yankees and the yet to be determined opponent at Yankee Stadium.
