Baseball is Back! MLB/Players Reach Agreement; Body Found in Trash Bag Germantown; Philly Protests

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association have come to an agreement on starting the 2020 season. "Major League Baseball is thrilled to announce that the 2020 season is on the horizon," said Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred, Jr. "We have provided the Players Association with a schedule to play 60 games and are excited to provide our great fans with Baseball again soon." Spring Training will restart on July 1 and Opening Day will be either July 23 or 24. Teams will play 10 games against each of their four division rivals, and 4 games against each of five their division interleague opponents. This is meant to reduce travel. All games will be played in team's home parks with no fans. There will be a DH in both leagues. Extra innings will start with a runner on 2nd base.

Two more Phillies players and two staff tested positive for COVID-19. That brings the total to 7 players and 5 staff. MLB has posted a lengthy safety manual to deal with coronavirus. It is as detailed as requiring no high five celebrations and no spitting sunflower seeds to control the spread of the virus.

Haverford Township police were led to the 5700 block of Musgrave Street in East Germantown on Tuesday afternoon, 6/23, on the search for a 25-year-old women who went missing on May 22. There they discovered the remains of a body inside a trash bag underneath a train bridge. Philadelphia police were notified of the discovery. The body has not yet been identified as the missing woman. The cause of death has not been determined. Police believe she may have been killed in Upper Darby and then dumped in Philadelphia. "There was a 25-year-old female who went missing from Haverford Township in late May. They got some leads, questioned some people and they got information that led them to the 5700 block of Musgrave, here in the 14th Police District in Philadelphia. That's where they found the bag," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

UPDATE: The body has been identified as 25-year-old Sabrina DuBose. DuBose disappeared from Haverford Township on May 22. Police believe she was strangled to death in an apartment in Upper Darby. An arrest warrant is being issued for man in Upper Darby.

A large group of demonstrators took to the streets in Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon, 6/23, to protest. They started at Marconi Plaza on South Broad Street to protest against the armed vigilantes standing guard over the Christopher Columbus statue and to call out the Philadelphia Police for seemingly enabling the armed men's behavior. The crowd then marched up Broad Street to the Municipal Services Building across the street from City Hall to call for the defunding of the police department and redistribution of funding to other neighborhood resources. Over two dozen protestors were able to enter the lobby of the MSB. 26 individuals were arrested and issued citations for failure to disperse, according to police.
