As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 MLB season has been reduced to just 60 games.  At long last, the abbreviated regular season schedule was announced on Monday and features the Phillies hosting the Marlins on Friday, July 24th, in those two clubs' opening day.

Games are expected to be played without fans in attendance, but each of the Phils' scheduled contests will be televised.  Specifics on which channels or networks will carry each game is slated to be announced at a later date.

Per MLB.com here's a break down of the Phillies' schedule:

National League East
Braves (10): seven at home, three on the road
Marlins (10): three at home, seven on the road
Mets (10): six at home, four on the road
Nationals (10): four at home, six on the road
American League East
Blue Jays (6): three at home, three on the road
Orioles (3): all at home

Yankees (4): two at home, two on the road

MLB action will get underway on Thursday, July 23rd with national broadcasts on ESPN
with a Yankees vs. Nationals match up and a Giants vs. Dodgers night cap.  There are MLB odds available here for those two games and although odds for Phillies' first game are not there yet, they should be updated soon as it gets closer to the 24th.

In the abbreviated 2020 schedule, each team is set to play 60 contests against teams in their own division as well as the corresponding division in the other league.  This means the Phillies are to play each of their rivals in the National League East division along with the teams in the American League East.

Local fans can expect to see the Phillies on national TV four times...Sunday, August 23rd against the Braves on ESPN, Thursday, August 27th against the Nats on FOX, Saturday, August 29th facing the Braves on FOX and Sunday August 30th versus the Braves in ESPN.

Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more.

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right.
