World Football / Soccer Scores:

World Baseball Scores

Today marks a major milestone in the return of sports. In Germany the Bundesliga returns with a full slate of games in a continuation of their recently suspended season. This really is a dry run for all the leagues to follow in the coming weeks and months. It is expected that there will be a resumption of play in the UK, Spain and Italy as well in the coming weeks and month or so.

Clearly for the US, watching to see how these European football leagues handle the health concerns as well as the gameplay will be of prime interest to leagues like the NFL and MLS. For MLB, the KBO season unfolding in South Korea provides a good blueprint for the return of baseball if the owners and players can agree on a format and the economics of a shortened fanless season.
