It is unlikely that this will happen, but Major League Baseball is reportedly considering holding a home run derby with games suspended during the coronavirus pandemic.

Joel Sherman from New York Post reported the news, even though he noted “logistical problems just seemed too big” even though it could provide the league with no match income during what should have been the beginning of the season.

Among his worries is the reality stadium needs to be opened; other people to install or install throwing machines, provide security and make films that need to be there; and the players have shown doubts in the past to participate in the actual Home Run Derby for fear of injury.

So many moving parts are very contrasting with NBA players participating in the H-O-R-S-E game because they can use baskets on their own street or home.

ESPN Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the NBA was working on finalizing the H-O-R-S-E competition with players who might use their gym at home. Andrew Marchand from New York Post reports Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Donovan Mitchell and Zion Williamson are among those who can participate.

The NBA has also arranged a 2K NBA tournament between the players who have aired on ESPN.

While baseball hasn’t appeared with a similar event, it can be on the phone. Sherman noted “officials brainstorm not only about various ways to play in a short season, but also on events that might have benefits too.”

However, one of those events might not be a home derby.
