From Lindsay Berra on what would have been MLB's opening day: "Grampa Yogi said, ‘A home opener is always exciting, no matter if it's home or on the road.' Or, in this case, in YOUR home. Baseball may be on hold, but it's always in our hearts. And that's a beautiful thing."

Aaron Boone addresses the creativity teams may need to play as many MLB games as possible this season: “If you're getting into potentially playing games in November, then comes in play a neutral site situation. There's probably some interesting, creative ways to potentially do that. Talk of doubleheaders... If you go that route, do you do it the minor-league way where you're doing 7-inning doubleheaders? It's probably an opportunity to try things you wouldn't try in a normal 162-game setting."

Aaron Boone: “Our job when we come back ultimately is going to be bigger than the game and all of us. As we've seen throughout time, sports can play a role in the healing, a diversion, a distraction, a sense of normalcy. So we'll be eager to hopefully go out and do our part, and in our case, the focus will always remain the same of trying to be the best we can be and trying to go out and win another championship for organization.”
