The MLB is about to lose tons of money with each game held without fans inside stadiums.

In a 12-page document released last week, titled “Economics of Playing Without Fans in Attendance,” the league predicts they could be out $640,000 per game.

With just 82 meetings planned this delayed season, teams like the Yankees could hit $312 million in local losses, while the Dodgers would lose $232 million, followed by the Mets at $214 million.

If a second wave of the coronavirus were to hit and cancel the postseason, the league would miss out on $787 million in media money.
