Should every baseball team play on Memorial Day?

2 months agoStaff Report

Matt Spiegel, Bruce Levine and Len Kasper joined Cole Wright on Cubs 360 Daily, presented by Miller Lite to discuss whether or not baseball should be played on the Memorial Day weekend.

Spiegel believes that this holiday, while honoring those that have served this nation and gave the ultimate sacrifice, also has another meaning.

“Memorial Day kind of signifies the beginning of summer, especially for a climate like Chicago or on the east coast…that [baseball] doubleheader on Memorial Day meant life was about to be spent outside for a couple of months with baseball [being] a big part of it.”

Levine believes that all teams, including the Cubs who were one of eight teams not scheduled to play on Memorial Day in 2020, should play on this holiday.

“Everybody should play on Memorial Day…Just the idea that people who work during the week sometimes cannot make it to a ballgame. That day is a special day, a family day, a cookout day. Baseball goes hand-in-hand with that.”

Catch Cubs 360 Daily, presented by Miller Lite weeknights at 7:30 p.m. on Marquee Sports Network.
