Major League Baseball will restart its season in late July, and by all accounts there will be no fans in attendance. MLB has not formally confirmed this, but the San Francisco Giants are telling season ticket holders they won’t have fans at Oracle Park this year. Instead, they will offer a fan cutout program in which fans can submit an image to be placed in the stands during home games.

The delay in getting baseball started came in part because owners tried to insist on a second pay cut for fans because of the concern that fans would not be in attendance. We have not heard from every team, but this information is likely to start leaking out as spring training begins and the 2020 MLB schedule is released.
It’s worth noting NASCAR has started having small groups of fans in attendance and the Kentucky Derby announced plans to have a limited number of fans at Churchill Downs in early September. The NBA, NHL, WNBA, and NWSL will have their restarted seasons/playoffs in a bubble atmosphere with no fans. The remaining major sport still in question regarding fans is the NFL.
