When will the MLB Season make its return.

The baseball community is craving the season to make a return so they can watch their favorite players play the game they love, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the season had to be postponed. Now talks about the season making a return are coming up. According to ESPN, the MLB is working on a plan that could possibly allow them to start by May. They could do that by playing in the Phoenix, Arizona. The stadiums they would play in would have no audience. All 30 teams would play in Arizona ballparks including the Arizona Diamondbacks stadium. The players, coaching staff, and other essential personnel would live in hotels in isolation. But fans do not agree with players living in hotels. Putting players in hotels would be disappointing for players who are not with their family.
Fans are also wanting to know a time where the season can return. But the problem is that no one can tell because the spread of the virus is unpredictable. If the MLB goes through with playing in Arizona, then they would possibly play in May. Some have talked about possibly starting in June or during the All-Star game. Some people think starting in June is possible, but may be too optimistic. With the baseball calendar, who would fit all 162 MLB games from June to October? Would they have double-headers every game? No, that would be too harsh on the players. Would they extend the season into the next year? No, because that would mess up the offseason, and the players need room to train and to spend quality time with their family.
In my opinion, the MLB 2020 season should not come back because the amount of games and scheduled events would be messed up and would not feel right. If we wait for the 2021 season to come around then we can resume normal games.
