Baseball may be on hold for now, but the coronavirus can’t cancel baseball food.

The MLB season has been on hold because of COVID-19 since mid-March, but league officials plan to start the season this summer during the Fourth of July weekend -- just without any fans in person.

Increased health and safety protocols are also expected to be implemented when the league starts up again. These protocols include replacing baseballs frequently, making the players adhere to social distancing and prohibiting fist-bumps and high-fives.
