MLB Ticket Policy Could Be Coming In Next Few Days

MLB Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III said he expects a league-wide ticket policy to be introduced in the coming days pertaining to games that either will be rescheduled whenever the season starts or outright canceled as MLB inches closer to what was scheduled to be Opening Day tomorrow. DeWitt said, "For the most part, and this is across the league, we've been saying that nothing has been decided yet regarding how the season is going to look, so it's hard to refund something if we don't know if it's actually being canceled or rescheduled. But once we get past Thursday, the urgency of the response will pick up and I think you'll see a league-wide approach to that issue get resolved here in the next few days, at least an initial approach to this. Thursday will come and go and games won't be played. Are they being rescheduled? Are they being canceled? Those decisions need to be made and therefore refund policies would flow from those decisions." Among other MLB issues is the fate of the Cubs-Cardinals London Series on June 13-14. Several sources said even before the Olympics were postponed yesterday that it was unlikely that the London Series would be played as scheduled this June. "If it's still wildly uncertain in a few weeks, you might have to see some sort of an announcement to move it or delay it or cancel -- or whatever that looks like, I don't know," DeWitt said. "With London, we were looking forward to it as a major highlight of our summer, and the outcome is certainly in doubt."
