ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Major League Baseball came to an agreement Tuesday night to open spring training on July 1., then play meaningful games on July 23.
For baseball fans in New Mexico, they still have to wait and see what will happen to the Albuquerque Isotopes.
“That is currently in the hands of Major League Baseball. We have not been notified of any definitive plan, but we're certainly not holding out a whole lot of hope,” said Isotopes General Manager John Traub.
Traub said he’s not a big fan of how the MLB went about getting an agreement, but in a few days he expects there to be movement to include the minor league in future decisions.
“The trickle down of the decision last night, that will all come clear in a little while, but I'll tell you the whole process over the last four months has been very frustrating because there's been very little communication in terms of answers that we all have questions to,” Traub said.
While the Isotopes’ season has not been canceled, there has been no decision on when or if our local team can get back to the field.
