(Undated) -- The World Baseball Classic reportedly will not be played in 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic. ESPN Deportes first reported the tournament's cancellation and the New York Post says it will be moved to 2023. Originally scheduled for next March, the sites for the fifth WBC included Taiwan, Tokyo, Phoenix and Miami. Major League Baseball owners are in favor of starting its season around July 4th. They approved a proposal today that'll now go to the players union. No fans would be allowed in ballparks once the league begins its shortened season. Around 82 regular season games would be played following a period of spring training next month.
