NEW YORK — Major League Baseball owners have come up with a plan for a roughly 82-game season to start Fourth of July weekend in the team’s home ballparks without fans, with the designated hitter added to the National League for 2020, a source told the Associated Press.

But the owners’ plan calls the players union to accept revenue sharing (read that as pay cuts) in order to salvage a shortened season out of the COVID-19 pandemic. And that could be a deal breaker. The two sides are expected to meet Tuesday.
